My brother has a slipped disc on c5/c6 and c7 with nerve compression. His right arm is all numb and in incredible pain.
THe doc gave him lyrica and told him to come back in 3weeks. He said his pain is pretty unbearable and I don't know if there is anything else we can do?http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5269445/IMG_0834.JPGhttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/5269445/IMG_0835.JPG
Any advice is greatly apprecaited.
I am trying to get a couple app with a surgeon and orthapeadic to get a consult. Problem is he is currently in Africa and not sure if they have the right docs there so part of my question is what can he do right now as well what is the long term strategy for this kind of situation.
