Your confusion is well understood by many of us on Connect. Conflicting opinions by specialists is indeed frustrating and certainly can be anxiety-producing. I suggest, as did @lisalucier and @jenniferhunter, that you seek another opinion. I do suggest that you consider going to a multi-disciplinary medical center like a university medical school or a Mayo facility. These centers are both research-oriented and usually have a medical team that is very good at communicating with patients.
