Hello, sorry we're all here. I'm having C3-4 -5 fusion with plating on Thursday, Jan 28. I've already had c5-6 & c6-7, 7 & 8 yrs ago. I have spinal cord compression with myelomalacia. I have the typical symptoms, so I won't bore you with details! I'm not afraid of the surgery...anterior using my hip bone. My doc has done this a bazillion times. I worry about lasting symptoms, and my level of disability. I just want it over with, so I can recover and heal. I've been sedentary for too long. I want to be in shape, even if I can't move like I did before. So, to all of you January surgeries ( early Feb too) BRING IT. Let's get on the road to recovery!!!
