Good luck! Mine is military related it is frustrating too. Do you think maybe one day we will glow in the dark or something. I did not like those nerve conduction test. I have had them on my arms once and legs now twice.

Now, yesterday, I was told that in order for workman's compensation to cover the operation, I have to get updated test results. A new MRI, SSEP, the nerve conductivity test were done two weeks ago, so that's OK. That damn workman's Compensation does this every time. My Dr. will state the fact that I may become paralyzed if I don't get the operation soon. That may get those lazy SOB's off their collective arses and OK the operation VERY soon.
I was told, the lumbar problems will have to wait until the cervical spine heals post op. This will take approximately six month's to a year. They will have to use cadaver bone to fill my disc space after removing part of my disc.. I think I can wait,to me, my neck is the important operation. John
After waking up for the fourth time this morning,my lumbar was killing me. On Friday, I called the Neurosurgeon/orthopedic doctors(same office) for a consultation regarding my neck pain. Now I'm thinking They should switch places, from my neck to my lumbar,lol. I don't know now....John
