: : I am 36 years old with a husband and 1 child. I woke-up in the middle of the night with a pain in my right arm at the end of June. I went to a few doctors and after having a MRI the Doctor informed me I have have cervical spondylosis(C3-C7). With spinal cord compression at serveral levels. He wants to perform surgery, entering the back of my neck and fusion (C3through C7) and put some kind of v in. He never discussed taking any bones from me or a donor. I am having the operation at Thomas Jefferson. I have not scheduled I was hoping to do it either November 6 or wait until after the holidays, and do it the beginning of January 2201. But by waiting I have great risks if I were in a car accident. My Doctor has said that I will be off work for no less than 4 weeks and possibly 6 weeks. I spoke with a Lady that has fusion C4-C6 in March and she said she felt fine afterwards with in a week. Except you are house bound. My problem with my discusion is at the monment I feel of to fine.
Are you going to have your surgery? I have the same problem and I am debating whether or not to have surgery. Mine is C4-C7. Some days are not to bad and others are excrutiating.
