They took out cage c6/c7 and put plate there. C5C6 was always prolapse on MRI .rigth and left arm Pain, and tumbs, no weakness, The medication dont work so mutch anymore. Is it møre riski When it have be done 3 times Before? Arterie,nerves,trachea they talk about, and 10% chance to get postoperative infection. Hope some here can answer me Litle About the risk if it is some so had do almost same things Before. Thanks
