Sure:
  1. Lesser of all evils - other discs have plastics, or just as bad maybe - nickel.
  2. I take supplements already that should substantially improve my immune system
  3. Won't live forever - a judgment call as to the risk of cancer versus health impact of being inactive

"Mild scoliosis of lumbar spine".
Four central disc protrusions in thoracic spine.

C5-C6, C6-C7 bulging, bone spurs. Imaging not looking good. Successful CP-ESP's placed in Oct 2019 by Dr. Desai.

Delayed lumbar surgery to work on bone density. Considering options now, some but minimal bone density improvement. Will only use LP-ESP.
