Allison Weissensee’s Experience of Learning How to Advocate for Yourself at a Young Age

When Allison’s doctor recommended a spinal fusion at age 20, Allison just didn’t feel comfortable with the treatment diagnosis. This led to her seeking a second opinion and ultimately had a discectomy, laminectomy, and laminotomy. Allison talks to Dr. Rita Roy about her experience advocating for her health at such a young age in this episode of the “Get Back To It” Podcast.
