My C6-7 disc is ruptured. MRI shows dramatic deformity. However, my pain and discomfort range is in the 2 to 5 area, (arm strength is pretty good) but the discomfort is constant. The onset was 1 and a half years ago. Since my pain is relatively managable but still very annoying should I consider surgery. My family doc says I should but the NS says no. Thanks.
