I have stenosis in my neck with tingling and numbness down my arm.  I also have associated weakness in the arm as well.  Mine is due to degenerative disc disease.  I have been offered surgery as chiropractic, time, meds and epidural injections have failed.  Neurontin helps a bit but I am unable to work on this medicine.  The surgeries offered are posterior laminotomy and anterior discectomy with fusion.  I am leaning toward the discectomy as I just expect the disc to degenerate further possibly landing me back in the docs office after a few years.  I was wondering if anyone has any useful opinions?  Thanks in advance.
