Thanks Dr Corenman,
The 1st neorosurgeon that I saw said he had never seen such a large extrusion and he said it looked like I had suffered massive trauma. I told him I had not. So I am just making sure I am understanding you correctly.
So a small fall with no neck symptoms 2 yrs prior would not be the kind of trauma for such a massive extrusion?
And most likely unfortunately my genetics were the culprit?
As far as recovery goes, my baby boy is now 6 months old, barring the surgery goes well, how soon after an acdf do you think I could pick him up again? He is 20 lbs now.
Thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate not only your knowledge but also your kindness.
Thanks again,Take care.
