  • From what you've said, you've had surgery and are now wondering whether it was necessary?

    Only another neurosurgeon or doctor could tell you that, but I'm sure he wouldn't have performed it if he didn't think it was necessary at the time.

    If you're really worried you could get a second opinion and/or read up on it. There's an excellent article on this if you prefer to read about it (see below).

    Hope that helps!

    Bye, Val
