Faxe my MRI to one of the top Ortho surgeons in the Phila area. He works on the Eagles and Phillies and Fluers. He said he couldnt fix me too and to consult with a neorosurgeon. Im so depressed. I do 2 interviews with 2 new PM DOc tomorrow, hopefully they will be better then my last one


  • I'm sorry to hear that... Have you seen a neurosurgeon at all? Maybe you will have better luck with them...

    Don't give up... there has to be help somewhere!
  • work you might count your blessings i got screwed by "one the best" there. if it's the same guy. try penn
  • Personally I think they are more interested in the big bucks paid to them by those teams. Have you heard that when a player gets hurt, they have their doctor on the sideline, they get MRI's, x rays, and CT's within minutes of their injury? Doesn't that make you sick?

    I hope you find someone else with your best interest in mind.
  • I would make an appointment with a neurosurgeon. See if they can help you.
    I'm so sorry to hear about the problems youre having.

    Christina :)
  • Maybe I should try out for Eagles new quaterback. Mcnabb gets hurt too much! ANyway, The last Surgeon has his secretary call me and he said I need to see a nerurosurgeon. Im not giving up, Ive got 2 beautiful kids and a wonderful husband. Im even thinking about maybe a pain pimp if surgery is not an option.
  • So you are going to see a NS? You've only tried Ortho's?

    Good Luck Dmoon! I'm thinking about you and wishing you the best!

    I can' remember, what tests have you had done? What are they basing their opinions on - discogram, physio nerve tests??
