I had the day off - originally it had been to drive all the way to Redwood City for a doctor's appointment, but I managed to convince them that a 10 minute phone call would be better on a telephone, rather than after a 3 hour drive. Yay. What my GP had described as a cyst on my spinal cord is just scar tissue, so there's no need for an operation there. I'm being referred to a pain specialist, with the view that I can spend the rest of my life on painkillers rather than get cut in to. We'll see how that goes, but there are 3 surgical techniques (in increasing order of invasiveness) that we can look at yet.
