Thanks so much for your opinion. It helps just knowing I am not alone out here in painville. I am so sorry for all the issues you are dealing with. I will keep you in prayer.
I am going to n Ortho. I have had a second opinion. Both say that they are concerned about permanent nerve damage. I know you are right, that I just have to make sure my head is in the right place. As by your history I know that you have experienced [B][I]knowing too much[/I][/B] what a long road recovery can be.
My concern is where does it end? I already have severe problems in L5-S1 in my lumbar plus all my prior neck stuff. I fear I will end up fusing my whole spine!!!
Sorry for the whining, and again I really appreciate your feedback. Hope you find the relief you need.
