Get a few opinions by neurosurgeons. I would not do surgery unless they thought they can help you. It should be last option. I had C4-7 to avoid paralysis but live with daily chronic pain worse than before surgery. And the areas above and below are worse. They went in the front on me, long vertical scar. Still can't swallow 100% and talking a lot is hard even more than a year later. But I am small, the reason why I was so affected, so the doctor says.
