    What has your surgeon had to say about the postponements?
    Is doctor aware of your symptoms worsening?

    Unfortunately, I do not have any recent experience with surgery...and I have never been a candidate for spinal surgery.
    If you were to feel up to it, it would be very interesting if you would comment about what you learned of your experience with your assessment
