I'm new to this site and could not figure out how to post to existing topics. Sorry to start a new duplicate topic. I had and ACDF from C5 thru T1 in June 2011. I am now scheduled to have posterior surgery on January 21st. Rods will be put in from C6 to T3. I currently have a bulging disc at T1-T2 causing pain in left shoulder and back. Will be looking for any advise or support now or after surgery.
