Hi there! This is my first post! I am sorry for my english, as I am not a native speaker. I am 36years old. 2 months ago I hurt my neck badly during rolling. The first week I had so much pain, I cried at times. After that, the pain became lesser but did never really disappear. Today, I still have to take painkillers and I lost some muscle strengh in my triceps and my chest. Also my index finger is numb. Long story short: 2 doctors (cervical specialists) recommended surgery (fusion) as soon as possible, because things didn`t change after more than 2 months and they are concerned that my muscel atrophy will be permanent. So i decided to do the surgery. Will my BJJ days be over? Is here anybody who also had fusion of the cervical discs (especially c6/c7)? What helped to come back to BJJ? What about boxing, is that possible with a fused neck?
