I was after some advice if anyone out there is in a position to help.
Have been seen by spinal surgeon, and was given spinal nerve blocks for L5/S1 herniation told that this will solve everything treatment was by consultant who viewed case as urgent and did procedure within 2 weeks of consultation... it didn't.
Was reviewed by register three weeks later and found that the procedure had not worked at all and told I need surgery, was sent for an X-ray and on return was told that if nerve blocks hadn't worked , then surgery wouldn't work so will give you more nerve blocks.
Now can't get an appointment for nerve blocks despite worse now than was before which I am happy to try.The scheduling team report that I am not on a list, that no list is planned and that they will be in touch in due course
Have been off sick for 5 1/2 months and due to the pain relief I am on am not aloud to go to work so going onto half pay imminently and will then default on mortgage etc etc.
I don't know what to do, where to go have tried speaking to the surgeon, the scheduling team and get a resounding oh well well see you when we see you.
Any advice gratefully received.
