I've been suffering for almost three years with a degenerating disc at C5/C6. My doctors initially thought it was just a muscular problem (probably because I am young, 37) but I recently made them give me an MRI and they found radiculopathy, stenosis, etc. resulting from disc loss at C5C6. The last few months, the pain has gotten really bad and it's hard for me to focus at work and do what I need to do at home (I have young children).
Recently I've met with two surgeons (in Los Angeles area) and both have recommended an ADR without hesitation. Now, I'm trying to figure out the pros/cons to going through with the surgery and could really use some advice!
Poking around on here, I've read some great things about the surgery but then I've also read some not-so-great things like "I've heard there's lots of problems with those." and things like that. Both surgeons also said they would use the Pro Disc 100%.
I know surgery is a personal decision, but I would love to hear from any of you that have had this surgery or considered it and decided against for whatever reason. I would greatly appreciate it!
