As mentioned in an earlier post, I had to take a decision after my Tour on whether or not to take the hefty cost for my herniated discs surgery.
This would have to be done at a German clinic and would be a non-invasive procedure in three places.
After that, I would walk out pain-free, at least as far as my back issue was concerned.
I would then have to go through the same loops and hoops to see if my similar neck issue could be fixed as well…
Because it sounded to good to be true, I got a second opinion from a German neurosurgeon working at a Dutch clinic.
He told me he was familiar with the procedure as a quick way to make – a lot – of money.
However, having studied the MRI imagery, he told me that my back was basically in such a bad shape that it would, in fact, be a waste of money to go for it.
