Posterior cervical fusion c3 c6

I'm scheduled for a cervical posterior fusion c3 c6 on march 5th and I'm close to cancelling. I had artificial disc surgery c3 c6 last january and it was a failure. My symptoms ( chronic dull one sided headache and dizziness,  ( especially upon waking), slight feeling of being off balance,  weakness, sight numbness and tingling did not go away. I had an mri in September which showed a minimal disc protrusion at c6 c7. I met with my surgeon 2 months ago and he said he would have to fuse c6 c7. My bone scan showed that I have facet syndrome so now he wants to do a posterior cervical fusion c3 c6 . I've heard horror story after horror story in regards to this surgery.  Any one here know anything about it?  Anyone have it done?
