New to board. I have a significant disc bulge at C5C6 with mild cord compression at C5 and nerve root compression at C6. I have symptoms of left arm numbness and tingling. I also had severe cervicogenic headaches but those have resolved. Original MRI and evaluation was done in May. Spine surgeon recommended discectomy with fusion. I have concerns about this procedure due to the risk of adjacent segment disease and limited range of motion. I am very interested in artificial disc replacement but my surgeon feels that the technology is still in its infancy and that the current artificial discs will be improved upon. Has anyone had disc replacement surgery? If you have had a fusion, have you had a recurrence of symptoms or new disc disease?
