I have a broad based dis herniation at c6-7 that displaces the left nerve root at c7 with encroachment and displacement and flattening of cord contour. Does anyone suffer from this? And if so will the numbness and severe shoulder and arm pain go away with time or am I making things worse by putting off surgery? I get different answers dorm doctors, some say surgery others try epidurals. I had 2 level acdf in 2009 and want to avoid surgery but I don't want to take a chance with paralysis.
Thank you for any feedback you can give. I am really worried.
