Re: Cervical Disc Fusion Questions ;

I had acdf c6/7 nine years ago - very successful. It was a few weeks for full recovery, but IMMEDIATE cessation of pain from my blown out disk! My chiropractor says my fused area is the strongest part of my back!LOL. The neuro put my incision in a wrinkle on my nck so my small scar is not even noticable.

I will say I developed acid reflux after the surgery. Not sure if it's from moving everything around, damage from intubation, or unrelated. But, the surgery relieved the pain and was worth it!

I wish you the best.
