Getting cervical cage on 2 levels. I like that it is not screwing metal in my body, I have enough metal already. These are plastic so the cold weather won't be crippling, like with metal. I have a compressed spinal cord so it had to be done asap. I am a stenosis sufferer since my teens. How long to recover? Doctor said 6 weeks, but I have been around the block on this one and I know it can be longer. Let me know how your cage worked.
