Hi everyone!! I'm a 36 year old mother of two and I work full time in the legal field. 3 months ago I underwent an anterior discectomy and fusion at C5-6 and C6-7. Since then, I've developed additional problems and had a repeat MRI - after seeing the results, beginning to wonder if I need a steel rod down my back! I follow up with my surgeon next week.
