Hi, I"m new to the site but have been reading a lot over the last copule months to educate my self. Yesterday I got quite a shock from my nerosurg. After MRi, EMG and two sets of x-rays he said" You need a major surgery" Went on to tell me C-3 through C-6 were in very poor shape. Not what I wanted to hear.
He then said the operation was bigger than he wanted to do and was referring me another with whom he had already spoken to while I was there. That suregons office has already called me this morning.
Bottom line haven't seen a lot on here regarding 4 levels procedures.
He stated they would need to go in from both the front and back?
Anyone had this done? Recovery time?
Probably the most concerning part to me is he said I may never be able to function fully again in my job, I work in law enforcement, dam not good.
Any input related to experience on this would be great. Sorry it's so long
