Do you think cervical nucleoplasty using coblation technique is helpful in c-hnp? I received such procedure 4 weeks ago but no effect yet...

Ask questions: There are many "minimally invasive" spine procedures that sound great on paper and even have some +ve studies. B4 doing any procedure, ask how # your surgeon has done. If it's not covered by insurance ask why not- if a procedure costs less than usual surgery and has "wonderful" results, they will jump at covering it. Lastly, for hnp, these procedures should be done for arm pain, not neck pain. ...Read more

I have a clover of garlic stuck in my cervic and can't remove it myself. What should I do? A piece of clover of garlic is stuck up in my cervic and I tried to reach it but can't get to it. What should I do?

I have a clover of garlic stuck in my cervic and can't remove it myself. What should I do? A piece of clover of garlic is stuck up in my cervic and I tried to reach it but can't get to it. What should I do?

I: I am aware that some women insert garlic cloves in their vagina to cure yeast infections that are not too far advanced. I am not able to comment on either the safety or the efficacy of this practice. However, my understanding is that the clove (especially if sliced open) can sometimes burn the mucosa (skin in the vagina); especially if the mucosa is already raw from a yeast infection. Thus, if you get a clove of garlic lodged inside you, it may become painful. Regardless of the reason that you placed garlic in your vagina, it is now a foreign object. I also recommend that you see a gynecologist, so that the garlic can be removed. ...Read more
