welcome to the chat
are you still there?

Yes I'm here, good evening - thank you for your swift reply
reading your question again
this sounds like you may need another MRI of you back
This is not normal after surgery and it suggests that there may be some impingement of the spinal cord
I did wonder about that - can I obtain an MRI scan via the NHS or will I have to pay (which I am quite
willing to do if it helps.
The NHS should pay for it- this is not elective
you are having symptoms
you can talk to your GP or better yet the surgeon again
Tell them you are concerned about nerve impingement- and you have pain shooting down your legs and difficulty walking
If they cannot understand this, I would go to another doctor...
I must admit I have been thinking of making a private appt. with the surgeon so that
that may be your best bet....
keep me posted ok
I may get some sort of advice. Thank you for your help - you have reassured me that all is
you are welcome
did I provide you with excellent service?
not right. I will contact you again when I hopefully have some good newss
to report. Linda Wells
