Look At My List Of Injuries And Comment
#20
In a way I think I got lucky. Work sent me to see my first surgeon and he didn't think he could help me so this was the doctor they sent me to so work didn't push a surgery. Well a few years later before the did my SCS they wanted to revisit the surgery option just in case something had changed. Saw first guy who though about doing a surgery but he wanted me to see his partner for a second option. He was the one that said only about 40% of back surgeries are successful and he said when I couldn't walk any more then he would be willing to touch my back. So I feel I got lucky to find surgeons that were more interested in helping me then collecting a pay check. Now maybe they just didn't have time to fit me in .and take work comps money.
So just don't be in a hurry to hop up on the surgery table and do your home work. maybe it will help and maybe it won't. It can be very hard to decide even with all the info you can get it can still be a gamble. My wife thinks I would be better off with a surgery now but I keep dealing with pain.
