Re: what kind of doctor to see?
just exactly where IS your disc issue located within the spinal levels? that too can matter in what type of surgeon is best. do you yopurself actually have your very own copy of that MRI report? if not, get one. you should alwasys obtain all of your own testing results just so you can read thru them yourself? and their just good to have in your own little medical file that you can keep at home on yourself too? if you do have that report, if you could actually type out what is in that very last page called the 'summary' here, it would help us to really see what that rad report states in HIS own words? the way any rad actually words a particular finding can matter much more than you think. marcia
