I saw a spine specialist yesterday. To make a long story short he explained that the ACDF on C5-C6 was completely useless and not needed. The neurosurgeon who had performed the operation was hoping that by conducting an ACDF that my symptoms would go away. The problem is that my spinal cord is draped over my c3 4 and 5. It has been that way even before my ACDF. The spine surgeon says that what should have been done and what I need to have done right now is a corpectomy, laminectomy, and ACDF from C3 all the way to T2. The surgery will last about 10 hours. Has anyone had this extensive of a surgery?
