Allen, Thank you for this brief abstract as for an introduction to the full story. I must admit that I'm speachless for the moment. My only comment for now would be for you to keep faith and remain strong physically, as much as you can, and psychologically to help in taking a sound well documented decision, after consulting with doctors and specialists in Australia, maybe the USA and Canada, who kowns? Be strong, keep faith and document your search for the best knowledgable surgeon in the field. You may consult this very knowledgable medical source in the USA: Johns Hopkins Health Alerts href="mailto:johnshopkins@p.johnshopkinshealthalerts.com">johnshopkins@p.johnshopkinshealthalerts.com> . Here's my personnal email address: href="mailto:jjlemire@videotron.ca">jjlemire@videotron.ca

Sorry Allen, I didn't mean to put any pressure on you my friend. Take your time and have a nice weekend! Hope the rain will stop. Here is the North, it will be 34C with some showers maybe. Take care of your back Allen. Regards, Jacques

I hope you are you doing some better.  Sorry - I did not intend to ignore your replies - I am still not totally familure with how the notifications work here,  The "practicing" doctors today do not seem to really get it sometimes.  I think they need a little more "practice" with their history.  Ted
