Hi Max - welcome! Deb and James had a good suggestion - ask for more specific tests/diagnosis, and perhaps (and this I would definitely do) seek a second and even third opinion. If you really do need surgery, you will probably hear it from more than one surgeon - if only one says it, he may just be looking to do some cutting. When you described the pain you have, how it would go away for a while, then come back - that's how mine started to, and eventually became almost constant. I really would recommend getting another opinion so you can determine and seek proper treatment - the sooner the better. Best wishes to you and
God bless your day!
