please help me!
HELLO. Need some advice. I am at my wits end. I had a L4 rupture last june had it repaired after emergency surgery. went back into surgery a week later for re herniation and a huge csf leak ( was repaired with laminectomy and disectomy) . my back is killing me and
my doctor says nothing is wrong. I lost my job as a respiratory therapist because I certainly cant lift a patient I have horrible sciatica down both legs. Too make things worse went into my third surgery in october due c6 rupturing. Had my neck fused. and the last week my right arm is numb along with my hand. I called to let the nuerosurgeon know to see if he wanted to do an mri since i see him tomm and the nurse got on the phone and said he doesnt want nothing. I really like him but, I just have a gut feeling he is getting tired of me complaining. This is really starting to get too me. I just want to feel better. Any advice. I am not sure if we can mention docs on this site but can anyone tell me if they know of a good spine surgeon in chicago or the northwest indiana area. Also. when I see him tomm. any advice on what to say to him tomm. I feel like such a complainer.
