Can someone tell me

I had herniated disc in '97 and now in Sept'09 I had a cervical disc and never considered surgery because of fear.

My question is since I have not had this condition corrected (if there is such a thing) I have nerve damage with caused autonomic nervous system disorder,sweating,low/high blood pressure,shakiness,body temperature high then low.

I have an major upcoming surgery and with the ANS I was told surgery does not go well and I could go into cardiac arrest with this condition.

Has anyone had major surgery and had nerve damage and had success?

I don't mean spinal surgery because they give you an epidural for that surgery. I am having colon surgery and will have to have the general anesthesia.

Please someone help me here if you have had major surgery with spinal injuries.
