I sure hope that you get this message.
When I read your post with your list of problems I felt as if I had written it for myself. I have exactly the same problems that you have. I even have panic disorder.
I am 45 years old and I am scheduled for fusion surgery on April 28th. I am having such doubts that I am now going to see another surgeon for a second opinion.
I have not read all of your posts ( you only have five) I hope you still read this board, I would love to speak with you on how you are doing now.
My name is Christine and I live in Loxahatchee, Florida ( West Palm beach area)
