Thanks! I am doing better, able to do my ranch work. Will see the orthopedic again on April 26, he didn’t rush me on my decision. It was not an emergency as the cancer clinic thought. My cancer is in remission and I won’t go back for 6 months. I am thinking I will go for a second opinion on back although I believe this doctor was truthful and I may let him do the surgery because it is only 80 miles from home. It is the L-5 compression fracture and spinal stenosis, could just be age related but I did do heavy lifting and heard a loud pop on Jan 21. What doctor doess radio frequency? Thanks again and good luck to you.
