    You have to be careful adding to a thread that you did not originate. It is always better to start a new thread.

    I am somewhat confused regarding your MRI findings and your symptoms.

    I think I understand one sentence; “based on my MRI my cervical you can likely help me with C3-4 discectomy reconstruction but told me it would be better if I got discectomy with artificial disc replacement”. If you have central canal narrowing from bone spur and not herniation, it is my opinion to use a fusion and not an ADR (artificial disc replacement). The ADR in the face of canal narrowing allow too much motion and can lead to cord compression in some cases.
