Currently feeling level 6 pain and numbness in left arm and hand. Dr. suggests surgery citing progressive degenration and possible future lose of hand/arm abilities. Dr. suggests surgery ASAP, However hearing the the some horror stories I'm reluctant and would like some feedback. Thank you

I did not have fusion but I have had 2 neck surgeries on C-3,4 and on C- 4,5. It was like a lightswitch. The pain & numbness disappeared after surgery. I am glad that I had the surgeries. Good luck!
