Hi dennisgb, I am similar in diagnosis bulging C5-6 and C6-7 sched. 6/30 for ACDF and foraminotomy with bicortical allograft bone plugs (donor) without plate/screw fixation planned although I am skeptical but NS will make the call at the time of OR.

... Well, I am back home after my second ACDF. Last July I had a C5-6 and C6-7 ACDF and I have just finished my C4-5. Hopefully this will fix me up now as MRI's show no more abnormalities. We did know last year that this one was bad but it had worsened considerably in the past two months and had torn causing almost complete numbness of my left arm. Looking forward to these nerves...

Home after ACDF
Mar 14, 2004
... After my surgery my right arm was much weaker and the numbness in my finger was worse as well. Give it a little time and it should improve. It takes a week or two for the swelling to start settling down. Keep posting your progress and take it easy. Susan ACDF/fusion C5-6 1996 ACDF/fusion and plating C6-7 2/4/04 (36 replies)
... Hello all! Newbie here with a post-ACDF question. Just had surgery 9/8/03-C6-C7 ACDF w/donor bone and plate. I would say that I'm doing very well considering what my body has been through. (Also have herniations of C4-5 & C5-6 which were not touched due to the fact that they were not responsible for my symptoms) Aside from the "pill in my throat" and incision discomfort,... (3 replies)
... Hi, Sorry to hear about your pain. I also have stenosis at c4-5 and c6-7. I am having surgery June 4, c4-5 will not be touched because the stenosis is from a bulging disc which potentially causes no immediate threat. The c6-7 STENOSIS is caused by bone spurs and is the site where my fusion was done in october. Stenosis can cause pain from neck to toes. All depending where... (7 replies)
... Hi to all. Please also note that anyone with metal/titanium or any implant in the cervical or lumbar spine areas should have a myelogram. MRI'S AND CAT SCAN'S do not always pick up stenosis, herniate disc's etc. The metals cause shadowing which can result in false/positive results. I am living proof!!! Had MRI and CAT SCAN and they only showed bulging disc c4-5. Had... (13 replies)
... I went to see an orthopedic spine surgeon who agreed with my neurosurgeon that I need surgery. He originally wanted to do a C3 - C4 ACDF. But I asked him about the C5 - C6 area on the MRI (taking advice from chuckstr to ask) as it looked compressed on the sagittal image. He said it might be a good idea to do that area also. If he did this he would do a posterior cervical... (11 replies)

Jan 31, 2012
... o.k. so I am 3 weeks post-op for the ACDF c6-c7. My left arm and hand feel a lot better. I don't have the pain all the way down into my left hand anymore. But, I have terrible pain in my neck, and bilateral deltoid pain. The neurosurgeon was only allowed to fix half of my problem. The insurance co. told him they would only approve one level and not two. My question is,... (2 replies)
