navel/silicon surgery? huh? (help)

My crazy yet trying hard to be useful aunt has been offering up heaps of (un)helpful info RE my ddd/upcomin' fusion surgery. She says she saw a MOVIE recently (medical in nature taking place at Florida hospital) where the doc went in thru the patients belly button and shot gobs is silicon into the messed up spine area and fixed him/her right up with immediate release from the hospital and near instant recovery. How much of this is crazy aunt and how much is reality? What's this called if anyone can decipher crazy aunt talk and could let me know I'd love to do some research, make some phone calls, etc etc

Uhhhh, never heard of this myself. Maybe mention it to your doctor so you can say you talked to him about it and tell crazy aunt that he said it's not an option for you. I'm sure she's sweet and well-meaning, but she ain't no doc! Lots of us have had f(r)iends and relatives give us well-intentioned but ridiculous suggestions, including it's all in your head and you can just ignore it and be all better!

Then again, I ain't no doc, either. Maybe someone else has heard of this and it actually has some merit.

Wish you the best,

When I first read your post, I thought WHAT??????? Then I read Emily's post and I have to agree, your Aunt may have good intentions but she definitely is not a DOCTOR. Just nodd your head and pretend to listen to her.

Good luck and I pray that you can find some relief soon.
