How old is she? I’m “only” 40 I was 38 when I had the initial injury.My wife has similar stenosis shit going on. She's been dealing with it for years - all stems from her and my son getting hit head on by a drunk driver 13 years ago. She's going under the knife at the end of the month. Not getting a fusion though. It's called a "french door laminoplasty". Basically they filet the back of your neck open like a fish, saw down the cervical spine, and then crack it open like a french door to give the spinal chord room to function.
We went to a top neurosurgeon in the country and this is what he recommends. He says she is to young for a fusion.
