I am suffering from left arm pain and burning in my left foot, sometimes in my left leg as well. Problems are mostly on my left side. I'm am contemplating surgery but keep seeing how time after time people complain after surgery that they are worse off or that the pain is still happening, limiting their life activities. I am wondering now, is this because people come here who have problems and we don't hear about the successful surgeries? I need find out all my alternatives before I risk it all with a surgeon. Even then, there are different procedures, how does one know what is best?
