Oh dear,lack of communication there! However the Neurologist would be the top guy I imagen,& would give the final go ahead.

Go back & ask the Doc. To explain xx

I had a disc slip. and fluid around the spinal cord. I panicked, but after having the operation to fuse together 3 vertebrae in my neck ( bone taken from hip bone ) I was really glad that I went ahead with it. As soon as I woke up from the operation I was pain free and I have never had a problem since, my neck still moves just the same as it always did, there are zero restrictive movements, my arms still go above my head, in fact apart from a couple of small faded scars on my neck and hip there is nothing to say I had it done.

The point is, either way if you get the right diagnosis and they do decide to operate don't panic, things will be OK !!

Typical, that's about right. ask them both if you can see your report and for them to explain the diagnosis.
