Hi all this is my first post here. I am having ACDF on 2 levels at the end of January. Apparently after a few MRI's, a discogram, and a myelogram, my doc told me my back is jacked up from top to bottom but these 2 discs are the most significant. I have done everything else possible to avoid surgery but nothing has worked.
With all that said I have 2 questions. First off I have a few tarlov cysts. Does anyone know anything about these and can they potentially cause problems? Second off I want to know what to expect as far as recovery and getting back to work. Yea I know it varies but I am just looking for a litmus test here to see when you guys returned. I am 37 years old and I now work a desk job in a cruddy cubicle and I have been for 8 years. Prior to that I did a fair amount of heavy lifting jobs out in the whse here at work. Thanks for your help!
