I am new to this site. Seems to have a lot of good information and support.
I have seen my neurosurgeon and he is recommending surgery. Anterior cervical decompression with fusion of C3-C7 (three levels). I am very apprehensive about this surgery, but I have had problems with my arms, shoulder, neck and upper back for the last 5 years. It seems like I really should have this surgery because my quality of life has changed a lot. I even lost my job. Also, I feel that the chronic pain has changed my usual fun loving personality.
I am hoping that others that have had this surgery will have some encouraging words for me.
Thanks and I wish everyone well out there!
