So, I scheduled my appt for my second appt with a NS at UPenn. UPenn ranks 15th in the country for their NS dept. Plus, the NS I am seeing is the only one in the practice that specializes in the thoracic spine, which is where my problems are (that we know of). Here's the problem. My surgery was supposed to be June 8th, and the first available appt was June 7th. So, do I go ahead and postpone the appt for a week? I'm thinking yes, because that'll give me time to talk it over with my husband and weigh my options, assuming the NS at UPenn has a different approach for how to handle this.
