Does anyone know if it's possible to go in for fusion of one level (C5-6) and end up having two levels fused? My doctor was debating whether to do two levels after seeing my MRI and CT and then said it's probably best to leave C6-7 alone for now. But I'm wondering if he might work on that level, too, based on what he sees during surgery. My issue is bone spurs and a herniated disc. I have a lot of anxiety about the surgery coming up in a few weeks but am looking forward to relief of neck pain and aching arms and hands.
If anyone can address this, I would appreciate it.
