Well I saw a neurologist last Tuesday. I was referred by my neurosurgeon after he could not find the reason for my continuing leg pain. As I mentioned on previous posts my CT and MRI do not show any problems that would be causing the pain. He did the tests right in his office and said that I have slight nerve damage in my leg. He tested a few different muscles in my right leg and compared them to readings on my left. I can deal with the weak leg etc. but I can't deal with the nerve pain. I asked if this was as good as it gets and he said probably. He said that nerves can be slow to recover sometimes taking 12 to 18 months but without a significant improvement to date he didn't give me much hope. I don't know what to do. I waited 15 months for surgery(live in Canada), watched my mother slowly die from cancer during that time but kept holding onto the hope that one day I could be relatively pain free. Just venting, this is the first time I've been able to put my thoughts down without crying. Anyone out there have continued nerve improvement past 8 months?
