I looked through your posts, you make intelligent choices and arguments.

I'm about to turn 32 and require c5-7 replacement, it's causing severe canal stenosis.

Given that I will have these discs in me for another ~30-40 yrs, that'll mean exposure to the toxins released by the esp discs for similar time. I'd imagine my risk of cancer will increase due to the toxins, perhaps I should op for fusion instead. the prospect of adjacent segment disease/more fusion is more preferable to cancer/chemo.
