I just want to ask everyone how to decide on surgery? After a long time I finally got a diagnosis that will most likely require surgery, but reading forums you see so many people that have had surgery and are still in pain that is the same or worse as well as people that wind up having a 2nd surgery if not more. It is so hard to make a decision. Surgery statistics are good (numbers and percentage wise) but how do you decide? I just want to add that everyone that has had surgery feels better soon.
