It is frustrating when you have to chase down your results and try to get answers...
The good news is that you don't need surgery!!! So that is something to celebrate...
I'm guessing that your appt. with the Neuro will be to talk about
PT, injections, and other non surgical ways to help alleviate the pain.
Did they already give you an appt. date with Neuro? Hopefully you will be able to talk with your GP when he returns to get some more answers in the interim...
Keep us posted!
