Well I had another surgery consult today. My original doc says fusion. My PM doc says fusion. My neurologist says fusion. SO today I went to an orthosurgeon who is supposed to be top 10 in NYC. And he says he can't see anything. Even though the report has this boney ridge and severe arthrosis on the level above.
My gut is telling me he just doesn't want to operate at this level. Especially since these things weren't there before the last surgery. So are they complications? I guess that might scare most surgeons.
