Hi, I am 23 (India).... and gone through C5-C6 Spinal Fusion Surgery as per doc said.

the good news is my pain is completely gone, I don't know how it will be in the future. I just took a rest of 2 months .......... (It was Nightmare)....

The doc says the new bone which in replaced in my neck will grow, so it will be alright in long run, (Hope it will, god knows).

The motion has been decreased, at C5-C6 segment.

I heard that Arthoplasty is one of your options (Which is costly & I don't know much about it), this surgery gives the full motion, but the thing is you should be careful, there are so many chance, the artificial disc may not fit.................
