Thanks for your offer in finding a good surgeon in my area.
Have already gotten 2nd and 3rd opinions on the surgery.
I get the same response from the opinions that I didn't
need this major surgery for a bulging heriated disc L5/S1.
It could have been done with a less invasive surgery
with a faster recovery.
How are you doing KEONO16. Your profile indicates that
you've had quite a few surgeries. After reading the threads
from other members that they continue to have surgery
after surgery with little or no relief, why would anyone continue
to have these moneymaking surgeries especially the outdated
fusions that are still performed by outdated surgeons who I
guess just don't want to change their old ways with the
new current updated technology which requires additional
training. I am not knocking all the great compassionate
doctors, it's the few bad apples that scare us patients away
and give the medical profession a negative name. Get rid
of the bad apples, bring in the newer technology. I consider
myself very fortunate that I didn't have a 360 surgery or any
of the many surgeries that alot of the members have gone
through over the years.
Hope everyone continues to heal and get well.
