View Full Version : first time seeing surgeon

04-18-2004, 02:30 PM
I am seeing a spinal surgeon for the first time tomorrow. I just all a sudden thought maybe I should ask everyone what questions should I be asking?
I have several curves, pain from degenerative joint disease and my curves have gotten larger according to x rays.
I am scared to say the least. I just do not know what to expect.
Any one remember their first visit to a surgeon?
Do tell..............:confused:
