Cervical Cord compression
I have cervical cord prolapse at C5-C6 with mild to moderate compression of the cord.It was an accidental discovery by MRI. I do not have any symptoms at all, so far. No pain or weakness.

Two Neurologist say "NO" to any form of surgery wihtout any symptoms

Two neurosurgeons reccomends surgery.

But, all of them agree that the risk is high if there is any injury. recently, I had a car wreck( rear ended). But, agian, no symtoms, so far. please let me know your opinion. thanks.

I personally would only have surgery if I had symptoms.  I had the surgery.  I was diagnosed with cervical myelopathy, had trouble walking.  The surgery did nothing for me.  I stall have the same or more pain etc....The only reason I had the surgery was because I could hardly walk.
