Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'm debating the benefits and the risks of having the anterior cervical spinal fusion on my C4 and C5 discs and was wondering if anyone has had this surgery done and how their outcome was. They say it can sometimes be a risky spot to go through the anterior of the neck by passing all of the arteries, veins and muscles before they get to the back of my spine to the discs. I want to make the best decision about whether or not to proceed with this surgery and I was hoping some of you would have some imput and maybe even have had this surgery. I'm very young and I don't want to make a wrong decision doing this surgery. The more imput and help the better. Thanks!
