@sunnyflower how can you not be scared to death? What happens if you don’t have this surgery?

Well the 2 neurosurgeons I saw, could see a little bit of fluid around my spinal nerves so it's not urgent but there's a lot of uncertainty. I'm so high risk that no one wants to touch me. I did my homework and the doc I want is the director of neurosciences and cheif of neurosurgery. I figured he didn't get there by having malpractice suits afainst him. It is very scary but I know either way I'm in God's hands and He knows what He is doing. That calms me. If I don't have it, I could lose function of my legs. Thank you for your concern and questions. These can take years to close (stenos) to that point. I think it's just a matter of when. I'm dealing with so much other stuff now too. I see vascular surgeon for my right brachial artery stenosis (50%+ and rare) 10/12. I am concerned about that and how it got that way. I think the diagnostics and fix are both invasive and that means pain! Take good care, Sunnyflower @fde11.fde11 @baltopat86
