A surgical correction [CTR] is possible fix for airway obstruction necess. trach, how soon do you rec doing this major surgery with high risk of complications?

Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?
Coblation: Understand, these treatments are low (not zero) risk, but for what purpose? Contained herniation means that there is no pressure on the nerves, and the disc is simply not in a "normal" location within the disc space. Study? Fine.
