  • Good afternoon all.I also have most of those symptoms.I have had 3 adcf surgeries.I had c4 c5 done and it didn't fuse,had it redone and then c5 c6 about 10 yrs later.I don't feel any better now than before my first surgery,but I don't regret them at all,I really don't know what kinda shape I'd be in if I didn't have them done.Now I just manage my pain and keep chugging along.Peace and love everyone.Mark
