What does it take to get into see a Neurosurgeon. I have my first appt coming up on August 6th. However, I made that appt back in June. My symptoms have worsened, and my ortho reluctantly said she would have her office call to try and get me in sooner but she did not seem to think it was urgent. I have also called atleast two other NS in the Boston area at top hospitals to get appt's for second opinions and they are booking out months in advance, like late Sept and even Jan.
I don't know what a person is supposed to do in the mean time. I don't believe I can wait that long for surgery, which seems to be the likely route. I may just have to trust what the first NS tells me just so that I can get the treatment I need.I don't know how much more patient my employer will be with me. Right now I am on lite duty but I have had to call in sick this week because my neck symptoms were sooo bad. And not to mention loss of pay. Any suggestions???
