    Lightbulb first time seeing surgeon

    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..............
