disk bulge cause numbness in left arm leg and index finger not working fine
My brother had problem with the index finger of left hand not working properly. Then numbness was observed in left arm and occasional numbness of left leg.
MRI done and following are the observations.
1. disk desiccadory change is seen from cv2 through cv5.
2. cv3-cv4 mild circumfrential disk bulge is seen upon dural sac and exiting nerve roots.
3. cv4-5 mild circumfrential disk bulge is seen upon dural sac and exiting nerve roots bilaterally.
4. cv5-6 mild asymmetrical disk bulge is seen impressing upon dural sac and left exiting nerve root.

Neuro Surgeon has advised for surgery.
My questions.
1. Is surgery the only solution?
2. What are the impacts of delaying surgery ?
3. What are the risks of surgery if not successful? How many chances of success?
