C3-C4 Discectomy without fusion
I have looked for hours for accounts of typical recovery for discectomy without fusion and really haven't found anything. Should I be worried my Neurosurgeon did not perform fusion when she found calcification on the disc she removed? Whats the recovery expectations for a Discectomy without fusion. I am 4 weeks post surgery and for the most part feel better and more mobile than prior to surgery however I am cautiously optimistically because I know some portions of my neck are completely numb due to the surgery, I am hoping its the just the skin. If giving the clearance I am ready to get back on my motorcycle.
