  • Hi Whiterabbit,

    It is so overwhelming trying to decide what to do with a medical condition. I have had that happen over the years & made mistakes by not getting 2nd, 3rd,  Medical Opinions. So, the more information you have, the better off you are able to make a decision. I am also sorry that I did not seek opinions from both the Neurosurgeon vs the Orthopedic Surgeon earlier. They look at your spine differently. This is just things, I wished I had done. I wish you all the best. Good luck. Take care, MaryAnne
