I am totally intimidated by my NS. He seems generally irritated that i continue to have complaints 6 months after my 2nd ACDF in 20 months. My biggest complaint is ongoing Left arm pain and weakness after a cord compression and myelopathy. He told me that I am too impatient and these things take time.He says that life stressors are getting in the way of me getting better!!!
Who wouldn't be stressed with severe arm weakness? I have an appt tomorrow and I become tongue tied when I see him. My new MRI shows more bulges with narrowing of the neural foramen( He told me it would be normal). My intuition has been 100% correct when I feel there is something wrong. I don't even know if I am fused yet and he couldn't answer that question 2 weeks ago either.
What do you think ? Should I hang in there or pursue another MD? I am confused!
