This type of question comes up in the legal field, so let me tell you how they would handle it. The person asking for the opinion would make it very clear what opinion they wanted. The person providing the opinion would provide the wanted opinion if reasonable, otherwise he would say "I'm sorry, I can't help you with this matter," thereby avoiding anything damaging ever being said, much less put in writing.
* 40's, otherwise healthy, back pain for many years.
* DDD at L4/L5. Facet pain at same level.
* Multiple RF ablations, with inconsistent/marginal results.
* Single-level disc replacement with Dr. Clavel, Sept. 2017. Went well, recovery MUCH faster and less painful than anticipated. Now need to get active again and keep back in shape!
