I have just been diagnosed with a rupture of the disk between my C6 and C7 vertebrae. According to the neurosurgeon, there are fragments of the disk in my back, it's throwing my spine out of line, and is protruding anteriorally (towards spinal cord) and posterially (towards spine). Has anyone else had this and has anyone successfully avoided surgery with this? Also, the procedure he wants to do is to go through my throat, remove the disk and fuse it together with metal. Ugh...I'm going to try traction for a while, but have an appointment in a month. Any and all experience strength and hope would be helpful. Thanks...Liz
