Going to Germany?

I have severe herniated c6 and c7 discs and am scheduled for anterior discectomy and fusion next week. What would anybody know about me getting to Europe for a multi-level disc replacement? Any tips are appreciated.

We have a friend or two in Germany but I am guessing I'd need to spend at least a few weeks there before getting back omn a plane. Oh, and two little ones to take care of.

    Are you asking
    1 - Can you go to Germany with your present condition
    2 - Are you looking to having surgery in Germany

    I cant answer either one. But if you are looking to travel, I would talk this over with your doctor. Spinal problems are difficult to deal with by themselves. Compound that by overseas travel, that just adds to the problem. Then you have to deal with the linguistics in Europe vs USA. What about medications? treatments? Insurance plans? All of this needs to be considered.
