Well I go back for one of my last post-op visits tomorrow. Wish me luck. My husband is going with me. He wants me to get a second opinion and review all of my options. So tomorrow we are going to ask for this. I am going to get a referral (hopefully) to Duke. My husband is stuck on Duke because a couple of guys he works with highly recommended them. If anyone knows anything about them pls let me know. I told my husband I don't need a second opinion right now. I don't want anymore surgery right now. Besides I can't have surgery again this year. Twice is already enough. He wants me to get established with them. I found a PCP that is willing to help me control my pain and stay away from a fusion as long as I can. I am glad my husband is asking for this because I probably wouldn't. WISH US LUCK!


  • How did your appointment go?
  • now he thinks all of my pain is related to maybe floating particles that were missed during surgery. I go for another MRI tomorrow. I am nervous and scared of what the results show. I go back to him on Monday. I am starting to lose trust in my NS. I am going to have some of the NP and PA's I work for look at the disc. We look at MRI's daily of the low back and diagnose. Thats bad when you are losing trust with the NS. Depending on who I see what diagnosis I will leave with. Maybe once I have the MRI I will have some answers. This will be the first one after surgery twice.
