HeY I have been reading a lot in forums I have gone and had 3 drs. review my case..the second one had best plan ..I am 63 now..was born with mild case ... with arthritis along with degeneration has caused the twisting ..and degeneration.. the neurosurgeon plans on starting at T5
and go all the way to pelvis ...y mouth dropped...He isn t saying ahead of time how long in hospital ..this has all progressed to this extreme in last few yrs...when I went to see him this week to talk about surgery he was saying another ct. to see how big the screws need to be..omg
I choked when he said that so he ssaid lets watch it and come back in 3 months... He is a good surgeon in best group I have found..now I feel like I am being scared that I am getting close to 65 which stats say success drops... he did say I have 80-90 percent chance of improvement,, how does stats rule our lives???
should I go ahead and bite the bullet.....feeling alone and lost
