Saw the second surgeon today...

I now have 2 opinions on my aching back. The first says fusion, that's it. The second, the doc at the UW I saw today, says he wants a discogram, then if it's one disc, he thinks the new artificial disc is an option. If it is more than one disc, then he agrees - fusion.
So next stop discogram!!
