Re: Will they have to shave my hair?

I'm guessing they will have to shave a small portion of hair given the level of the posterior surgery.

Please tell me about your myelogram. I'm in a similar situation (prior ACDF) and now with symptoms that may be at the same level (C6-7) and a new level (C3-4) but the MRI wasn't definitive enough. I will be having a CT myelogram in the next few weeks (going to be scheduled with the facility some time this week) and am very anxious to hear about your experience.
