Hi everyone. I am new to these Forums. I am a 56 yr old male (married 34 yrs as of June 15th), two grandsons (one almost 2 yrs the other 5 yrs old).
I have been having worsening left elbow pain (right too) for a yr and a half. I am left handed. MRI results this past week indicate I am facing major neck surgery (plates, and I don't know what else). I have nerves being impinged on, narrowing canal, bulging discs at the c3 to c7 levels.
My DO is sending me to a surgeon who specializes in this sort of surgery. I visited his web site and he looks like he has outstanding credentials.
I notice quite a few posts here referring to an ACDF. What is that?
