What are the long term outcomes of posterior cervical foramenectomy and ACDF For cervical RADICULOPATHY from foraminal/spinal stenosis C4 thru C7?

In brief: ACDF outcomes

Even a surgeon can not answer that question.
Long term can be pain relief all the way to more pain. I would say if you haven't found a good interventional pain specialist to consult with prior do so now and see what other options there are besides surgery. This is if it is just for pain, if you are having any neurological deficits surgery might be your option.
