Re: Getting "another" opinion vs "second opinion"
Kristy, I saw the ortho here for two years, and had MRIs, ESIs, a myelogram, and CT scan. Then saw the neuro for a 2nd surgical opinion, then saw a highly recommended neuro in another town. Different recommendations were given. It just doesn't feel right to me. My insurance won't pay for repeating the same tests. Plus I [U]never[/U] want another myelogram. It was terribly painful because of the severe compression, with no space for the dye to run through (the drs explanation of the pain, plus I saw the films).
But I don't see any way to get "another" opinion and have it be an opinion independent of the others.
