    Your questions are best answered by having a discussion with your surgeon and your primary care physician - then you will need to take the information that they give you and the amount of pain that you are in and make the decision about surgery.

    There are members on this forum who have had success with non-surgical methods including, PT and yoga.  I am not one of them, I have had two neck surgeries.
