    Question about spinal fusion

    Hi, looking for help with people who have had Cspine fusions.

    I have MS and for ten years each of my MRIs has shown spinal stenosis, arthritis and two herniated discs. I have lived with the pain and it has stopped me from doing nothing..

    My most recent MRIs show more deterioration. My neurologist keeps telling me spinal surgery is in my future..specifically cervical fusion. Im scared to death!

    If you have had this done, can you tell me what it is like, if you are glad you had it or if you regret it and if waiting is a bad idea? I see no reason to rush into this as Ive apparently lived with it for a decade. I am 53 years old and other than having MS- very healthy. I exercise (boot camp!) 5 days a week, play sports and horseback ride... I am 100% ambulatory. Thoughts?
    RRMS- dx 05
