I am vacillating about the possibility of a ACDF at C6C7. The herniated disk along with “associated posterior osteophytes” is “partially obliterating anterior subarachnoid space.” More than neck pain (which is getting better with PT), the nerve pain in my arms and possibility of progressive damage is my main concern. And yes, I am making another appointment with the NS to get some of my questions answered.
Here is one of my questions for the post-op ACDF recipients: If you had it all to do over, would you go through it again? Oh, and a follow up: Was it easier, more difficult or about what you expected?
