I have fractured vertebrae/herniated discs. Is it common for a doctor not to complete corrective procedures due to patient having high potassium 6.9.

In brief: High K

Yes definitely no surgery.
High potassium has high risk of cardiac issues. Your high potassium has to be treated before any surgery can be considered
