Hi, Bella4--thanks for your post. If you're not 100% sure you want to move forward with another spine surgery, we suggest you seek a second opinion to understand if surgery really is the best or only option for you. Here are two articles about getting a second opinion that we hope you find helpful: ( Second Opinions: Five Things About This Patient Right ) and ( Second Opinion on Spine Surgery: Rude or Smart? ).

Also, we hear all too often that people who suffer with spine pain feel like others don't take them seriously or simply don't understand. You are not crazy--you are in pain. We'd like to share this with you ( How to Support a Loved One With Chronic Spine-related Pain ) in hopes that it will help you help those around you better understand what you are going through.

We hope this information helps, and we wish you the best of luck!
