I am told that I have cervical stenosis symptoms with myelopathy. My NS says I will need a five level fusion from the front and a plate place there and during the same surgery, posterior cervical laminectomy with rods installed. Has anyone else encountered this to this degree in one day? My NS says after I wake in the mornings, then I put my collar on and it will only need to be on for 6 weeks. I think this is a miracle, if true. I will be in the hospital for at least five days, though. Please let me know what your experience was with recovery, pain and limitations. Please let me me that it is possible for a fast recovery and limited limitations. Thanks for your support!
