I have been told I need a C5/6 and C6/7 anterior cervical discectomy and fusion by my neurosurgeon as my MRI
showed severe nerve root compression at these two points.
My neurosurgeon said that because of the severity of the compression I need it done urgently because once the nerves are damaged they
cannot be repaired.
Is this correct about the nerves?
I am really hesitant to have any kind of spinal surgery but have no choice so anyone who has had
this type of surgery done and can let me know how they went , good or bad.
