Happy Thanksgiving, Rose and all the rest of the Ballardeers.
@dickanders – ironic when talking about uneducated Americans that you stated “Have you read the resolutions the states passed when they decided to SUCCEED from the union?”
The word you want is secede.

Thought you might enjoy it.
My husband is 7" taller than me, yet we both have the same inseam. His height is in his trunk. Sitting next to 6’ tall friends, the shoulders are at the same level.
In my case, PT had me do what is essentially “the cobra” in yoga – lay on stomach and push shoulders up as far as possible, bending the spine backward. Opened up the front of the spine which is where the disc had slipped to.
Never had an x-ray, MRI, or other test. From doc to PT, problem solved.
Have you tried PT? Or did the doc jump immediately to surgery? Might be worth a conversation if PT wasn’t offered.
Actually, he should go to PT. When I slipped a disc, my doc couldn’t diagnose it. Admitted that doctors know little about backs and injuries. Sent me to PT and within about 5 minutes the therapist KNEW what the problem was and had started me with some exercises to fix it.
I hobbled in, bent over and in great pain. Walked out, upright with much less pain. A couple weeks of therapy and I was better than new.
Yep, the best introduction to classical music there is.
