I just had my neurosurgery appointment and to my surprise, they recommended surgery. This is not a 'surgery happy' practice. I have done some research on the actual procedure and it all makes sense. I came here and now I am scared to death. Has anyone had success with this procedure? I am out of options considering that I have had the pain for a long time and tried chiropractic therapy as well as exercises. I am really hoping to hear some positive outcomes.
