I am going to see a new Neurosurgeon to see about having a rod in my whole spine

Started by mickeymouse on 08/29/2011 8:35pm

I found out when I had my last fusion that the dr who did that surgery was responsible for the nerve obliteration in my right leg. So now I am currently in the process of going to see another Neurosurgeon for a consultation and to see if he will take my case and help me. I was told that in order to stop this aggressive and progressive disease is to get the discs removed and have a rod placed in my back and have my neck fused. I don't know if that information is correct or what but it kinda makes sense? If anyone has any advice or information that could help me please let me know I am open to all suggestions, advice, info etc. Oh I also have spinal stenosis in my back and neck. Scoliosis in my back, sciatica just severe chronic pain all the time.

Do you find this discussion helpful?
