I'm new at this site. Most of the posts are about problems after surgery. There are no successful post at all. I wonder why is that so. Probably those with no pain after surgery are happily enjoying their life, I have tolerable pain in both arms and constant numbness in my left arm and fingers. My neurosurgeon is not pushing for surgery and wants me to make decision. After reading these posts I'm scare to death to death. I really do not like to leave with this small pain but afraid to get worse and it is not reversible. Please, I need some advise. I VERY MUCH APPRACIATE YOUR ADVISE.
By the way I have had two MRI in past two years and one EMG result point to Foraminal stenosis without spinal stenosis at C5-C6 and some other minor issued on other levels.
