Hi again,

I posted earlier regarding mri results - saw neurosurgeon who said surgery - but won't be able to have surgery till August due to FMLA - anyhoo HR person is looking into somethings to see if there's any way i may be able to have it earlier. Dr. did suggest I get a collar for my bad days and possible PT.

Since I have time I am going to get a second opinion and some people have been suggesting that I see a chiropractor. I was wondering if it would be safe to see one if i have spinal cord compression?

I just want to make sure that i don't do something to have further damage. Thank you for any help regarding

mri results below just to refresh
