Hello again, everyone. I am brand new to this forum and I didn't realize I wasn't supposed to put MD names in my posts! Ooops! I posted my story yesterday (see below) and I'm just trying to get advice about surgeons in my area. I've seen a few, all with various techniques. One is confident he can help, one is not, etc. A couple of people sent me PM's but I did not receive in my email? Anyway, I'm just looking for help, as fusion terrifies me and this is a huge decision. I'd much rather hear from an actual person with similar back issues who used a particular surgeon they liked. Please, if anyone can help me, I'd appreciate any feedback.
