Hi Chantelle, welcome to sso, no surgery is without a certain amount of risk but this is kept to a minimum as you will have someone monitoring your spinal cord the whole time, i read somewhere that the risk of spinal cord damage is less than one percent,

If you have any questions then do hesitate to ask we are a friendly bunch who just want to help and support one another

Where are you having your surgery
