Need help and guidance regarding upcoming cervical stenosis surgery
Hello fellow Spine Health members!
I am brand new to this site/forum, and would like to introduce myself. Also,I have a few questions and concerns that I hope you can address.I am a 54 year old female. Yesterday I had my first appointment with my spine surgeon and he reviewed my mri results with me. I'm a bit overwhelmed today, due to the bad news I received. He said I have "severe bilateral stenosis at C3 through C6". He plans to make incisions in the front and back of my neck, and fuse my vertebrae. I'm freaking out! What I would like to know is- just how severe and painful is this type surgery and how long is the recuperation time? What can I expect? How did it work out for you? Any help, suggestions, personal experiences would be greatly appreciated!
