I am debating on whether or not to have c5/6 surgery. I have a buldging disc C5/6 and conservative methods don't seem to be helping. Has anyone else had this surgery? Any info or input would be appreciated.

    Which type of surgery are you considering?
  • Neck surgery. C5/6 they will replace it with a titanium plate.
