I am 41, and was recently diagnozed with spinal stenosis from C4 to C7 with Cord Compression and myelomalcia at C5-C6. Both doctors that I saw recommended surgery (they said it's urgent but not emergent) and I tend to go for that. But they are offering different procedures - one suggested a three level discectomy with fusion at C4-C7 and another suggested a laminectomy for C4-C7.
I would love any thoughts you might have on it. Thanks!
