    Lightbulb Anterior cervical discectomy ROI-C

    I will be scheduled very soon for an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion C5-C6. My surgeon will be using a ROI-C cervical cage. Obviously I am very nervous and would like any input about the success of this surgery. Diagnosed with left paracentral disc protrusion, annular tear has progressed now causing effacement of the thecal sac and mass effect upon the ventral aspect of the left hemicord. My initial injury happened July of 2008, actually fell in a hospital while caring for my daughter who was in hospice at the time. Jennifer is now in heaven, passed on July 4th, 2008. I am the guardian for my grandson (Jen's son) who just turned 15, and desperately want to be the active person I used to be for him. Over the last 6 years this injury has gotten worse. I have noticed many sites recruiting for lawsuits for this type of cervical cage. If anyone has gone through this surgery I would like to hear how your experience was, post operative pain, recovery time, etc.

    Thank You,
