    Sorry to hear about your on-going back problems. Hopefully, this one will fix it. Nort, is correct, your and your families health is EVERYTHING! Anything after your health is just icing on the cake!!!

    I had throat surgury for a papiloma, (About the size of 2 quarters side by side!) on my Left vocal cord, earlier this month, and it was a life altering event for me! The 2 days it took for the biopsy, (Negative, thank god!) to come back, were sleepless nights!! I now TRULEY value my time with my wife and girls EVEN more now than before!
    Once again, good luck and hang in there!

    Sorry to here they have to go back in.
    This is what? The third time? I hope they get it right. They'd better.

    Was the other Doc a neurosurgeon or orthopedic?

    Everything I read before having mine done said to stay away from orthopedic's.
    My Doc is a neurosurgeon specializing in brain and spine work. It'll be 12 months on Dec. 4th since I had mine fixed and except for muscle pain (too much lifting) I'm fine. After the surgery I congratulated him on doing such a good job. He said thanks but not everyone comes out as good as I, he wished they all could.

    Good luck.

    Just remember that "a bad outcome is not malpractice". In the informed consent the doctor will discuss risks, benifits, alternative therapies and possible outcomes both good and poor. Of course there is no gurantee in medicine. The surgeon can do everything perfect, exact, precise and you body rejects, doesn't heal, reinjure and is this the surgeons malpractice--No!
