D66---didn't know if you were joking about your self imposed deadline of graduation for need to get well. If you were not joking, then I respectfully suggest that you might want to take a step back. You are talking about a serious procedure that will affect the rest of your life. Take your time, do it right, do it once (my opinion,, for what it may be worth)

Phillyjoe,
Yes, I was joking a little. Of course I would love to be better by that time but I would never rush into this medical decision. My main concern is finding the right surgeon.

We want them to get rest. Certainly don't want Dr. Clavel and his staff to get burned out. The demand is really high. If my husband's L4/5 goes anymore; we'll be going back to him.
