I felt like I (the patient) was treated like an old car, my husband the owner of the old car and the DR. was going to be the mechanic. No options other than the most major surgery (fusion) I think. He said if I were in a wheel chair I wouldn't "last" for more two years. He seemed to get off on showing us all the hardware he would use. When we left there I was not only scared, but very depressed also. Thank goodness there are other surgeons who did not agree with him. What a waste of time.
