Dear SKZ...

I am so sorry to hear about your setback. Yes, you are understandably freaked out when it's suggested you go BACK to your surgeon...ugh! Let's hope it's not a structural issue and it can be resolved without anything too invasive. Apparently no MRI done yet, huh? As far as MRI's - that's a whole other soapbox for me. I had one done where my disc just didn't look so bad (though 6 months prior the MRI showed large rupture into nerve root). After a year of suffering - both pain and CRAZY neuro stuff - and loads of tests - I basically insisted on a another cervical MRI. Low and behold...disc shows flattening into my spinal cord. I just think that soft tissue moves, one quick look-see doesn't always catch what's really going on. Anyway...that's my issue!

Please let us know what you find out. I'm sorry you're having this "hiccup" in your recovery - let's hope that is all it is and you'll be back on track shortly. I'll look for your update on the board. Take good care. Mona
