So glad to find this!!!!

Hi my name is Lauren. I am 36 years old and I have just found out I have to have 3rd cervical spine surgery.

2005 - Double discectomy w/ fusion and cadaver bone - level C5 & C6

2009 - Artificial disc replacement - level C4

2014 - AD has moved out of column more than 50% and must be removed, we will be doing a fusion at C4 this time. He is also checking for other problem areas. Mostly concerned about C7

I am really glad I found this site for some support from people that understand.
