I talked to the doc who did the 3 cervical epidurals on my neck. We both agreed that I needed to go to a doctor who specializes in necks and upper back. The ortho I have gone to for years is lower back or lumbar spine. This doc said he was going to text the specialist to get me in.
In the mean time, I called the secretary for my other doc and told her what the anesthesiologist said. She agreed completely as they all seem to work together. She gave me the number for the Cervical specialist. Well, apparently, he is very booked and the soonest they could get me in was November 27 with his assistant. I said ok.
The next day, I get a call from his office. They got the text from the anesth. doc and said that they could get me in next Saturday and I have my choice of times. WHOA...I guess I got some guy with clout. This appointment will be with the man himself. I took an appointment next Saturday morning.
This morning I get another call stating that he happens to have openings this Wednesday and he could get me in then. No, I have to work, but thank you. Wow, I guess you don't get the appointments without having some pull.
Cracked me up how I went from November 27 to October 30th just by one text from another doctor. Now, I am a little worried that they have looked at my MRI results again and maybe there is something I am really supposed to be worried about. Why did I move up the ladder so fast? Believe me, neck surgery is nothing I am going to rush into. I will live with the pain a lot longer before I let anyone operate on my neck!
