HI snshn784, Welcome to healing well forum.
I am sorry that you are having these medical issues going on. I wouldn't really know if this is something you could wait on or not as I don't have this condition and I am not a physician. Hopefully someone will come along to better answer some of your questions. However, in my point of view if I were in your shoes I would get a second opinion. You obviously have many questions regarding your condition and possible outcome that this neurosurgeon didn't address with you. Good luck and please keep us updated.
