I need advice. My MRI show bulges at every cervical level and a herniated disc at C3-C4 with degenerative disc disease. I have a few surgeons saying to just fix the herniated disc and some saying no surgery at all. The problem is I only have neck pain not radiating pain. I'm only 29 years old and in pain everyday. I have two kids and would love to have more. Any advice would be much appreciated, I'm completely torn as to what to do. Help!
No one can advise you on whether or not you should have surgery. That decision must be made by you and your physician.
We do strongly suggest that you consult at least one other board certified spine surgeon to ensure that they both are recommending the same treatment, type of surgery and if there is disagreement, or different options presented that you ask them why.
