I saw my Spinal Surgeon on 11th March 2011 to get results of MRI Scan on full spine and CT Scan of lower spine which were done on 4th March 2011. My problems have been loss of balance and difficulty in walking any distance. He has referred me to a Neurologist as he suspects I may have the onset of Parkinsons because I also have tremors associated with this illness. I feel absolutely gutted!! In addition the Spinal Surgeon is going to make an incision at bottom of spine and is going to use high powered laser to burn out nerve endings.
Previous operations include ACDF in September 2010 - PLIF plus rebuild in December 2008 - Rt Knee replacement in 1998 but incorrectly done so Revision carried out in January 2000 - Lt Knee replacement in July 2006.
