If you get the neck fused, that will eliminate the pain, right? Can you do that now and then do the vertebrae and disc replacement? Or does it have to be in-operated on neck to do the vertebrae replacement? And does he use the robotic surgery for joint replacement?
The neck fusion would eliminate pain but it has a 60 % fail rate at my age, and if fused you can't do the replacement when approved...plus IF I did the fusion you can not look down to see where your stepping, drive a.
Car and on and on....I will deal with the pain in the neck until it is unbearable, ( he said at that point I could have nerves "burned " , another option that can create more problems...) I am just happy to get my hands working and hopefully gain some strength back in them and stop the shaking.... going to go to pain management and see about other options to mange the neck pain, sure can hurt to explore other alternatives....absolutely do not like pain pills they make me feel wonky and sick to my stomach....maybe acupuncture ???
