I'm new to the group,and after reading suggestions to another to get 2nd opinion b-4 surgery, I don't know where to go next.I have been to the orto group in my area, and asked for another doc there, but they insist I see this young phys assitant, and she doesn't listen,is pushy and is very hyper.After several injections,pt and meds,now last Friday introduced me to a surgeon and wanted me to schedule for the fallowing Monday, like a car salesman sz he is very busy and apts fill up fast, better take this appointment while I can. Sz need a discectomy and laminectomy and I feel railroaded. I am scheduled for discogram this week,I hear it is painful also.I feel like they are just getting all they can from my insurance company and don't even care about my pain.Should I just start from scratch and find a general practitioner and go with referral from him?I had been seeing a rhumatologist b-4 that was going no where, now my head is spinning.I want to wait for the surgery and this little twit sz if I don't they can't help me anymore, and I will need to move on,now she doesn't even want to refill any meds.Any suggestions?

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
