I'm so sorry Crystal. I have no advice, but did want to send good thoughts for you and your mom. I hope someone can provide you with great advice as you always share great information with us. Hoping your mom heals soon.
Thanks Barb!I had a laminectomey done at C5-6 by a neurosurgeon almost 10 years ago. He botched it, and to this day I have no feelings in my thumb and pointer fingers. A few years later I had 4 level cervical fusion with a ton of titanium and cadaver bone done by a wonderful Ortho surgeon.
To me a Neuro is fine for nerves, I want an Ortho for my bones. I have some oesteophytes at C2, they hurt like heck for a few months, but have pretty much stopped. Suggest getting your mom into a pain management doc, they can do wonders.
Me too, it comes and goes. I bought Orthaheel slippers from FootSmart and it helped.Crystal, I am so sorry your mom is in so much pain. I had bone spurs in my heels and for some reason it comes and goes. I'm sorry I have no advice or input but I just wanted to say I will pray for your mom. I know how difficult it is to see your mom in pain. I would think a neurologist would be a good place to start.
