I was seen by a nurosurgeon in May 2010. He said, admitt for investigations etc in autumn, maybe operation in spring next year, mind you, he didn't say which year. After many phone calls to Lund's neuro clinic and to be told by the RN, you're not on the list. I complained to my "Parkie" doctor at the local Parkinson team. Recieved a letter from Neurosurgeon, apologies all round, long que.
Last week, recieved a new letter from Neurosurgeon, no operation because the "higher ups" have restricted them to ONLY 14 DBS/Yr. What do you do? Parkinson Assoc, are informed, the newspaperare also informed. We'll see what happens
