I had previously posted under another thread "met with NS today...3 level fusion vs. repeat micro-d" and posted in my last thread that I had finally decided to go with the repeat micro-d with my previous NS after seeking a 2nd opinion.
Well, I just got a phone call from my NS office and he's NOT giving me the choice!
I called on Friday to tell them that I was ready to proceed with the Micro-D and got a phone call back from his scheduler to say that the NS wanted to make sure that I understood this is fusion surgery. I told her I thought I had a choice, but apparently this is not the case.
So, I've now called NS #2 to book surgery with him. NS #2 is against fusion right now and only reccommends the micro-d.
This is really frustrating. I liked my original NS just fine but when someone says "you have 2 choices, , I reccommend #2" doesn't it mean I still have a choice? I've never had such a problem with miscommunication with a doc before.
Wish me luck,
