Many times new members join and they have a big fear about spinal surgery. Ok, spinal surgery is scary, no question about that. But some of the comments I read is about the
outcome of those surgeries. There are so many negatives, so many post surgical problems, that any new comer is going to have their doubts.
Yes, there are problems, not every surgery works out. But there are hundreds of spinal surgeries that correct the problem. You see that by members coming on board, talking about
an upcoming surgery. They talk about their fears, family impacts, etc. They have the surgery and for the most part all goes well. At that point, they really do not need Spine-Health as
a resource. That is good, I am so happy for those folks On the flip side, there are those that things didnt work out. They talk about their problems (and they are valid)... But what happens
is it can create additional fears for people just beginning to learn about spinal problems.
SO, please, please post about your positive stories, how surgery has made a difference in your life.
