Leslie loves to help out, and there are many kinds of information that can be effectively shared online.
Unfortunately, the internet is not conducive to offering specific advice on individual conditions.
It's difficult enough to diagnose and trouble-shoot an issue in person. Over email, it's dangerous at worst, and irresponsible at best. Thanks for understanding why we respectfully decline to offer medical advice online.
We do encourage you to reach out to your local community of yoga therapists, bodyworkers, physical therapists, etc. And do take the time to get multiple opinions, particularly if someone is recommending surgery.
We wish you luck and hope you'll find ease with whatever is challenging you.
