Thank you for the quick replies! My apologies if this posts twice. The NS guy at the VA seemed almost disappointed when I told him I was doing much better after therapy. My choice for now is the ESI for now but I think surgery IS inevitable!
He did show me where the spinal canal is being absolutely crushed not allowing the Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to run freely at the C4 level or so. I was absolutely devastated when I saw the word "OBLITERATED" on the MRI.
It's just me and my 13 y.o. daughter at home while my wife is overseas active duty Army in Saudi so for now so I must do what I can to stay healthy.
He mentioned "Choice" but I am within a 30 mile radius @ about
only 8 miles. I will be seeking a second opinion before any surgeries.
Thank you for everyone's support!
Bebbles, I moved this post to this thread to keep things together.
