My wife will have surgery for C5, 6 and 7 fusions in September. After surgeon saw her MRI results, he scheduled surgery for September, although there was another guy with same problem and he will have surgery immediately. Anyway what should we expect after surgery and what are the risks? Thank you. Worried husband.

Surgery and anesthesia involve some risk, but they vary depending on her age and overall health, diagnosis, and type of procedure used. Risks include: pain in a bone graft site, failure of the fusion, nerve or spinal cord injury, rejection, infections….
