    Hi, I just saw your question on here...It hasn't kicked in??? looks like you wrote yesterday?? What a bummer?? are they going to try more? I am still in NYC and will be returning next week. Saw one surgeon and if you can believe this he wants another fucking discogram!!! apparently there are two kinds and they did one in sf that he doesn't want to go with. Tomorrow I have another appointment with another doc.

    The consensus is fusion for sure. Most likely two levels...possibly one. I am now leaning to do it in SF as people are crapping out here on taking care of me. Lots to think about. Have to find a surgeon in SF...maybe will use Dr. Berven....lots to think about. Very overwhelmed right now. Give me a buzz next week, or I will call you. xoxoxo hang in there.
