Hello from Oklahoma

Hello from Oklahoma! I have been looking for a place like Spine-Health for a long time. Thanks to my new doctor, he gave me a note pad sheet with things to look up from this website.
I am looking to have my 5th back surgery in the next month or so. I count all of them even though 2 surgeries were debridement surgeries from an infection that I got from my 2nd back surgery.
I am so very scared to have another one and said I would NEVER have another surgery. But I have to do something about the pain, can't stand it any more.
But I think I found a great doctor, wish I would have found him 10 years ago for my first surgery. He actually seem to care and very knowledgeable. My visit with him kinda made me very upset with the previous doctors that maybe my problems for the last 10 years could have been "fixable" way before it has gotten this bad.
Just makes me think that if your doctor is not helping you out there... FIND another one!
