I have scheduled appointments with two different neurosurgeons for surgery consultation. One of them I saw back in November of last year who said I needed a fusion for my spondylothesis and a laminectomy (I don't know if I spelled this correctly) for my stenosis/sciatica. He would use a Ortho to do the fusion and he would do the laminectomy. I have been avoiding this up until now and am going to schedule surgery for January, if possible. I scheduled the other for a second opinion, just to be on the safe side. I wanted to ask you well seasoned spinys what questions would you suggest I ask them. I am soo overwhelmed by the whole thing and I know you all will have great suggestions. I am very, very nervous about the ability of them treating my pain as I will be about 100 miles away during recovery.
