C6-7 Acdf set for May 30th

Hi all ,

New here I have been waiting for ACDF operation since Nov of '12 and finally the day is set for May 30th .. Now I'm worried .. My doc tells me that there is a 1 in 100 chance I could be paralyzed from the shoulders down , 1 in 100 chance I could have a stroke and die .. Please tell me he misspoke , the odds seem kinda crappy especially when you factor in how common this operation is .. Lots of sleepless nights ahead I'm thinking
