Hello everyone

I have some questions about the appointment with surgeon.I tried to find answers on the site but I did not find them.So,after the first meeting with the surgeon ,what next?I have a single MRI done months ago,and since then my condition worsened drastically.My surgeon will make a recommendation for a new MRI?I hope to not only keep in mind the old MRI and let me continue to be in pain.It would be many questions,but the easiest would be if someone who has already gone through this process,He(she)would describe the steps taken and the waiting time to have surgery.Thank you in advance.

    It may be me....but I'm missing what your condition is...what did you look up on this site already?
    And your condition that is worsening?

    It may help with responses as to what process you would like feedback on.
    Thank you

  • It would be hard to answer the question of what will happen to you next, or what the surgeon you are seeing will recommend next. If you read around you will see that everyone has had very different responses from a variety of surgeons....
