    Looks like he's a pediatric surgeon.

    Thank you Linda. I’m fused from T3;-S1. No illiacs and no hardware from T3 to L2. I had an MRI done for pain that is shooting from my neck into my skull. The cervical MRI shows bulging disc at every level. I was referred to Dr. Asghar from my primary dr. Very scared I may be facing another surgery and I think it makes sense to put my rods back in my thoracic. Just not sure that can even be done. I’ve had a thoracoplasty which left me even a bit more deformed. Very nervous and upset. My appointment is Monday.

    I hope that your appointment went well. Have you thought about a second opinion? That might give you some confidence.
