Thank you! That is one of the few gifts I have... I'm very analytical.

I don't want to influence you either way... I will only say that I was in a similar spot, and although I'm older... I came to grips that the risk / reward was a no-brainer for me.

It took some time for me to come to that conclusion though... And it really is the "trifecta" of the items I quoted... Supplements (vitamin D among other things)... Really have been shown to have dramatic impact on various cancers.

Oh and one thing I forgot to mention... Do you realize how much plastic you're already consuming every year?

That was the final straw for me... I just wasn't going to immobilize two vertebrae forever, causing other spine problems (I already have too many)...
L4-L5 Broad Diffuse Bulge, mildly contacting left L5 nerve root
L5-S1 Broad Central Disc Protrusion mildly impinging left S1 nerve root
"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.
