I was told I have a bulging disc at C4-C5 and it has a annular tear that is leaking, I am fused from C5-T1 already, so the doc. wants to do a disc replacement surgery, the only problem with that is my insurance company don't cover that. Is that the only option? Can't he just fuse them to? What would that do to my ROM? So many questions and I don't see the doc until the 20th, I am scheduled for a steriod shot, but they never worked for me in the past so I am not holding out much hope for this one either. Anyone have any ideas on what other treatment I may be able to have or is this surgery the only one I can do?
