I just got back from seeing the neurosurgeon. He wasn't quite McDreamy (although both are neurosurgeons, McDreamy is more brain while my guy is spine!) but he was nice looking, young (only 6 years older than me), and basically a really a nice guy. His goal is to keep me out of surgery. The L4/L5 is no big deal. The L2/L3 thing people couldn't figure out, he could read it. It is indeed a herniation pressing upon a nerve. Thus all the leg issues. He said it's in a really weird spot-only 1% are located there and he especially doesn't want to operate due to that location. He said in time I should recover completely. Yea!
