Im not at this stage yet but im preparing since PT didn't work. I have enough anxiety about possibly being paralyzed from surgery, but I also am having more trouble choosing a surgeon. I looked through my providor directory and read all the reviews for each dr and i find some good reviews some bad reviews aoout how they disabled them...then some of the places that aren't in my insurance like rothman or laser spine i hear good and bad things.
i really don't want to choose the wrong surgeon.
plus i dont think there's any spine surgeons in my plan, so my only option is neurosurgeon, and i feel like they deal more with brains.
