someone please give me some advise on which way to go.. Ive had a microdisctectomy in '98 and went back to work and reinjured the same disc, they tried this new procedure on me called a Spine I.D.E.T. ( Intraldiscal Electral Thermal Therapy) and Im still in a lot of pain, but the work comp. doctor keeps telling me Im ok.. "Oh you're fine" But Im not so I had a second opinion and the new doctor said I was never a good candidate for the Spine IDET and a fusion is normal procedure for a reinjury.... Ive heard some horror stories about fusions and im really scared... I have three children that have been without their mother in normal statis for 5 years now and I dont want to stay this way anylonger... someone please give me some advise...
