Glad you found this site. Most people here that had ADR or any surgery for that matter, were in a lot of pain, but moreover, a level if disability. I for one on both counts. Only you and your trusted surgeon can make that decision.
Keep something in mind, we are here to share each others spine history, surgery, and successes as well as struggles.
Unless someone here is actually a doctor of neuroscience or orthopedics and has seen you as a patient, they cannot tell you that you are or are not a candidate for surgery.
