Re: Do I need ACDF???

well, hopefully the 2nd opinion helped, and didn't muddy the water for you...

as long as the doctor feels you're not risking futher damage, and as long as your pain is tolerable, if you haven't tried traction to me it is worth a shot.

it provided me relief for well over a year...

in the meantime, you may even consider a THIRD opinion! and you can continue to research your condition and further consider your options...

I would make surgery your absolute last resort. that is just my layman's opinion, curious to see what some of the previous "posters" thoughts are given the new information...

again, best of luck
