    Other Care (cervical laminectomy with fusion): this was not caused by cancer..i guess i had a blocked nerve in my neck which was making my legs go numb

      Hi Christine. Not only do i have cervical cancer, stage 0. I also have degenerative disc disease in both my neck and back. I have had 1 lumbar fusion at L/4-S-1....and 3 cervical fusions at 3/4, 4/5, and 5/6....i now have to have my last cervical fusion on my 6/7...due to the nerve paralyzing my right arm.....best of luck to you!
