I need to do whatever I can to stop a friend from getting back surgery...assuming I am correct in my assumption.

Its actually my very close friend's dad who has all the typical back pain symptoms: Sciatica, leg numbness, tremendous back spasms.

His surgeon has shown him an MRI with a bone spur that is supposedly sticking into his spine and pinching the nerve.

Ive tried to get him to see Dr. Ira Rashbaum in NY but the dr. cannot see him until mid-November.

What do I do?

Can anyone point me to a success story regarding bone spurs of the spine/back??

Hi - I don't think I have bone spurs, but my spine sort of looks like fusilli pasta, all twisted with scoliosis herniated discs etc.
Doctors ask if I am in pain and are shocked that I am not.
Maybe search the site I am sure something will come up.

Hi Al, no worries, I found an inn to stay at in Oak Bay, next time I'll spend some more time in Victoria and we can get together for a beer and some TMS talk.

Cheers,
tt
