I went to my NS appointment this morning. My NS isn't even in this week. I knew I would be seeing his PA but usually she can consult him and he comes in to talk to me. No such luck today.

She said my Thoracic spine is a mess she was really surprized to see one so bad and I should go ahead with the ESI's next week hopefully they will help diagnostically if nothing else.

She said first thing Monday she is going to look at my MRI with my NS. I have another appt on the 8th of November. She said she would call me personally after she gets done discussing my case with my NS.

Intersting developement is there is a new NS working at the office. He is from out of state and comes up for 6 weeks at a time. I looked up his name and found a website. It looks as if he does some of the surgeries that no one else in the practice is currecnlty doing. He actually did some of the training with my NS.

The PA did think my herniations were brought on from the MVA, but she also said I have some pretty extensive degeneration that they could fight. I guess I still need to call the attorney back.
