osteosponge procedure to replace discs...
Does anyone know about the recovery rate for the new osteosponge procedure to replace discs in a neck, my neck! I'm in chronic pain. I had c4-c7 regular fusion in 2005. Now all my discs are bulging and I have none bone spurrs, and my neck is dry and I
need the surgery. that pinch in my nerves. This new procedure will replace c-2 to c7. I'm scared because I'm afraid of the recovery time and not being able to see my mother. She has stage 4 cancer. Slow growing but my aunt also has stage 4.
