Need surgery.

I've seen three doctors who recommend surgery - a diskectomy and interbody
fusion. I would like to know what are the post operative results. My only
symptoms are extreme weakness in the right arm and pain in the neck and
shoulder. How successful is this surgery? What about scar tissue?
The doctors say that any small fender bender, fall, or slap in the back
could leave me quadruplegic. Very scary. I live in Philadelphia where there
a lot of very eminent neurosurgeons. Need to see a couple more. I'm in
search for answers. 
Any advice?
