Hi, CJ :wave:

It just sucks when we count on a certain procedure or surgery to help elliviate our pain and when it doesn't happen or takes so long, it can really get us down. I know, girlfriend!

Absolutely, get another opinion. Also, I would call the places where you had the MRI and post-discogram CT and get those films and corresponding reports. They usually are not free but very valuable to have. Also, like so many have already said, get your surgeon's reports from the IDET (they should have taken pictures of that as well and you can get tose copies) as well as the discogram reports.

That way, when you go for your second opinion, you have all your stuff there. I carry mine even to my current surgeon whenever I have an appointment.

So many second opinion appts. were messed up because the films never got there. If they get there, fine, but if not, you are loaded for bear anyway.

Good luck!
