Unhappy Lack of Medical Care

My fiance' (dating for three years engaged 1 1/2 of them) complained for 30 days before seeing a doctor at his facility. Then it took them 6 weeks to get an xray for him to see a doctor out of the facility. It has been seven weeks and they just did his mri and he saw a neurologist. Now he has to have a 6 inch cut made into his neck and they are going to move his windpipe over and take out three discs from his back and fuse them together with fluid or something from a cadaver within the next 14 days. Please help. Thanks. Vickie

I'll be praying for you and your husband. Sometimes that is all we can do when we are under the DOC. This has got be a scary time for you.

Yikes! What the heck happened to him that he needs a 3-level fusion? I'm guessing that PT and steroid injections weren't an option?

I would do research and find out a whole lot more. Call and talk to the doctor and/or try for another opinion.

I will keep you in my prayers!
