. I mean in sure there's hypochondriacs and pain seekers but really I just want to understand why I cant walk.


I think this is the problem with doctors. They are just not doing their job, they are labeling their patients before they exhaust cause of problems, and they feel pressure to not order a battery of tests by the insurance companies.

Nan,
Finding out what was wrong IS a BIG relief. I just hope there isn’t any permanent nerve damage due to how long she has had the problem.
When the discs in my neck between C5-6-7 herniated on me, I was operated on within 2 weeks total from the time of the injury. This same neurologist only saw me after my primary care physician tried to fix me with traction which was insanely painful.
When this neurologist saw me for the first time he did 2 basic strength tests and had an immediate MRI done. He reviewed them and had me into emergency surgery the next morning. He said I would have lost the use of that arm if I had waited any longer. I still have numbness in my right index finger from it.
I’m very mad at myself for not remembering him before now. He saved my arm and I FORGOT! I feel like an idiot!
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

I held out a good 6 months before I had to remove my herniated disc. All the time trying different non surgical treatments. I was not able to straighten up, in constant pain, only got out of bed to use the bathroom. After surgery I had no permanent damage.
Developed foot drop before the second surgery, most of it cleared up except minor nerve damage, to my big toe as a result I cannot keep slip on shoes on my right foot the big toe will not raise up enough and the right shoe will fall off. I can live with that lol not wearing mules or clogs.

I think foot drop and Cauda equina syndrome are the only permanent nerve damage worries. If she has neither of these now I think you need not to worry.

even though its not an ideal outcome we are all grateful you did remember this great dr and you were able to get her in. and back in the same week!!!! that's incredible in itself. and no one told her in any way- even in a nice way- that shes nuts. but yes they know time is a factor. and that you have nan70 as your guide she knows more about this than any of us probably. if your wife goes in for surgery that's not a bad thing. unpleasant and a pain in the arse but at least it can be planned. maybe not the mothers day present she wants. but maybe so! when I had my knee operated on even the pain after the surgery it still felt better than before.

after she is better, and she will be! if it makes you feel better, slam that old dr on yelp or whatever. I have only left at least 4 stars for anyone and this usually not what I would say but franky theyre lucky its not a malpractice lawsuit. I mean if they admitted that they didn't know what to look for is not a good answer. and im paying you why?? I call it the copay ragdoll. ive never taken a medical class ever and I can add 2 and 2 better than those dimwits.

either way as always we are here for you and your sweetheart
