My surgeon's office finally called to schedule my appointment to discuss my case. I can't even meet with him until May 18, 2012.

For those not familiar with my case: buldging discs in L4-5 and L5-S1, Severe bilateral foraminal stenosis in L5-S1 and moderate in L4-5, mild DDD

    ..a bit of a wait, but hopefully you not in too much pain while you wait...and that doc can keep pain under control for you.

    Although, I understand not all spinal surgeries are for relieving the pain. I have never had surgery..so can't speak to it, but wanted to acknowledge and encourage you. :)

    And on the bright side, it gives you plenty of time to get all your questions answered. :)

    Take care! and hang around the site. All the info here can make time go by nicely!
