Hi Cracked Skull
Thanks for stopping by.
I have had no success finding a neurosurgeon yet...I saw one in England and he did not even bother to look at my research, said he could see my plate and it was cosmetically very good (But he could SEE it...to me he shouldn't be able to see it). He did not listen to me...when i mentioned that I get fluid on my forhead he said "what fluid - what is it" (How should I know). He said forget american doctors they will do an operation at the drop of a hat, they are in it for the money. I explained that Dr. Adamson had given me his advice and money was never mentioned...Dr. Adamson didn't even need to pass the time of day with me....but he did....he read my email and gve me an opinion for free.
I was told to "get on with my life".
I told him about the pain and my quality of life and he said "I'm a neurosurgeon, I don't deal with pain - see your GP"
There was no point talking to him I mentioned brittlenes in acrylic and he said. " oh that is very rare". I saw him in January, 09 and he has not written to my GP yet and he should have.
I did not cry in front of him and tried to hold my own but he was so intimidating.
Once outside the hospital gates I broke down and cried my eyes out. I travelled from France to the UK to see a total piece of ****
I asked my GP to refer me to another Neurosurgeon in the UK and she said she couldn't due to funding....I said I will Pay. In the meantime she has given me amitryptyline to "try".
My daughter lives with a Neurosurgical Nurse who has recommended a Neurosurgeon - I am awaiting an appointment.
Again thanks for stopping by
I will keep you updated from time to time
