I m having mild lumbar scoliosis, Spina Bifida & Tethered Spinal Cord at L-3. EMG & NCV test r normal. There is continuous Neck & Lower back pain. Can't sit or stand in one position for long time (say for an hour). Some doctors say there is need for an operation & some disagree! What should I do? Operation, yes or no?
