I've been around the block when it comes to back surgery.  I've had three in the last year.  If I do  not know the answer, I know where I can FIND the answer and I WILL help you.

Please post your questions or comments and I will get back with you asap!

Warmly,

wldrose72 alright, I have my first surgery coming up in a couple of weeks. They are going in and widening the spaces where the nerves come out to take some pressure off and hopefully help with the pain that I am having. First of all, I am terrified! I have never really had surgery before, I am worried about my blood pressure and my general anxiety disorder that was under some control is now out of control.

dreamawebb For Christine1 if you are on work comp it can take a long time for anything to get approved . My specialist refferal took about two months and my operation took ten months and a lawyer to get approval for. If you are on work comp and dont have one already get a lawyer asap.
