I am so sad and frustrated today. My ortho doc has referred me (a month ago) to a neurosurgeon to see about having a one or two level fusion or to see if I am a candidate for ADR. I am currently taking ms contin 30/3 times a day, as well as percocet for breakthrough 3-4 a day. I still have pain that really limits what I can do, even with the meds.
Since it had been a month and I haven't heard from the neurosurgeon to schedule an appointment, I decided to call them to see if they received the referal and could book me in.
It was before they opened so I listened to the answering machine and was going to leave a message. On there outgoing message they stated that currently there is a 1-2 year waiting list!! :O :''(
I was so upset that I immediately hung up in disbelief.
I am soo upset, can't stop crying. I can't possibly wait that long in the pain I am in.Plus, what if I wait that long and they won't do the surgery or it is another year or two to book it....
