Anyone here getting at it still after cervical fusion surgery?

Yup. Had it done in October 2017. C5/6/7. Disc replacement and fusion. I started riding again in May of ‘18

Needed it bad. Nerve damage was causing atrophy of right arm/shoulder/back muscles. Was just a bad deal. I eased back into. Obviously, have some range of motion with neck, but overall, solid

If you don't mind me asking, what's your age? And thanks!

Was degeneration the cause? I have severe stenosis on 5/6 with slight compression, being told to fuse 4-6.

Prolonged injury. Basically, broke my neck. Not paralysis level, but broke it, never really knew how bad until time had passed and other areas started to not work right, which lead to early degeneration causing stenosis narrowing/compression. I had three levels of discs replaced with artificial discs, and two levels fused (5-7)
