Thanks to all for your response. Frederick, I tend to lean towards your approach. Also, I have so much pain I’m almost willing to do anything. Numbness still creeping upwards. Then I totally hear what Smed is saying. It’s nothing to be cavalier

Check out the Doctors success rate- If it were me I would want a surgeon that performed this type of surgery on a frequent basis. Brother in Oregon has been in a wheel chair for a few years after having surgery for a ruptured disk.
