the surgeon is suggesting going through the left front of my neck to reach the right side where the nerve is impinged and replacing C6 C7 with a cage, my fear is the steel in my body, my spine is completely straight with no curve to the lumbar region due to a headinjury 20 yrs ago, i also have FM and want to know if there are less invasive txmts ie laser? i have extreme pain in my teres muscles and he is also suggesting i have my shoulder re-examined
also my husband is a surgeon so he says my risk factors are greater.......i have had several RFA proceedures to my lumbar region (with relief) and one to my right cervical without relief, decreased range of motion to bilateral arms and difficulties with using my left arm, and hand with out great pain
i will go anywhere
