Right when I think I have it figured out…

After much deliberation over picking a surgeon, I find out I was misinformed of what type of surgery I was getting.  My surgery now will be a hemi-laminectomy, which includes removing bone, potentially weakening my discs and spine even more so.  Not exactly what I was under the impression of during my first consultation.  My first surgery was already quite invasive, so I’m not sure having another aggressive surgery is the right approach.  The thought of having back surgery for the second time already freaks me out, but now I’m even more hesitant and not as confident in my decision.  I thought I had it figured out and I was finally feeling better about going for round 2, but now I feel that I’m back to where I started…confused, worried, and unsure.  Back to more research and doctors opinions…
