They must think it's OK to wait until then to do the treatment. I know I have to have my new lenses lasered but I've been putting off my appointment. Not because I'm concerned, I've just had so much going on.
They wanted to do it this coming Friday but at 7:00 am,it's about a 45 minute drive from here and I don't do mornings. The following Thursday was the earliest afternoon appointment, they're extremely busy down there. So it's my fault, not there's.

I noticed 1 of my appointments is on the 3rd, that's payday which is very busy for us so I called to reschedule. She said it needed to be quick and the only other appointment available that week was on Friday at 730 or 7:50, so I took 7:50. That's too early too but it needs to be done. I'm afraid if the surgeon I'm seeing today wants to do surgery it'll be in the early morning too and that's an hour and a half drive.

The neurosurgeon shot me down. He won't do surgery so I'm stuck with this pain,weakness,numbness and unstableness etc. Even sending me to a pain specialist would've helped. 6 months of tests,medical expenses for no help in any way at all.

Wait, what neurosurgeon? I knew about the vascular and the eye but did you say some about a neuro and I forgot?
Yeah I contacted my Neurologist way back in March about my weak legs,having a hard tiome walking,fell twice and about fell several other times,pain,numbness burning in my legs,the tingling across my neck and back,the pain in my neck and head etc. She sent me to the Physical Therapist because she knew the first thing the surgeon would ask is if I'd had therapy. She sent me to have the MRIs done,agreed that having the circulation in my legs checked was a good idea and everything. I've been having problems with my spine for 40 years now and I'm to the point the Chiropractor can't help me anymore. I just saw the Neurosurgeon 2 years ago about my neck but it was right after I had the stroke in my eye,found out I had high blood pressure and a restriction in my artery feeding my left arm and said I had too much other stuff going on and it wasn't an emergency but to let him know later on if it got worse. Well it has gotten worse plus my lower back is worse.So since I had all the tests and therapy done it was time to go see him/.

I remember the eye stroke and the bp issues. And you being smart enough to tell them to check your right arm. Has that really been two years?

I sort of remember some of the thing with your back. But then I wonder is that someone else I'm remembering?

Please keep me posted on whether someone comes up with something that can help you.

Yeah. The surgeon even mentioned it was a year and a half, that I saw him in April last year and it was a few months after I talked to the Neurologist before I saw him and I had the stroke in my eye and knew about the blood pressure and all that when I saw him. I don't re,member exactly how long but all that took a few months too.
