ninja Posted May 15, 2009 Share Posted May 15, 2009 Hi All Been away for awhile so just getting updated. I see many of you have balance problems which I now can relate to. I've started to have problems and am more or less using a walking stick permanently ( the type used by hikers etc are very useful, they have a spring which I find very useful when walking uphill ). My main problem is waiting for my recoiling, yes believe it or not I am still waiting ( I was told on 6.9.2008 that it was dangerous to leave). Numerous calls have been made to the hospital and I've even gained the sympathy of the secretary, my GP has written as have doctors of my local hospital as I was admitted to the assessment ward some time ago for numbness to my arm and loss of control. We continue to worry the neurosurgery department and all they tell me is live life as normal and I am one of fifteen waiting. As you can appreciate my life is on hold and to add insult to injury I lost my dog last month after 17 years and my wife has told me to wait until everything is sorted out before we have another one but who knows when that will be so I've started looking. Some of you have said I should complain but I don't fancy lying in a hospital bed with the surgeon looking over me after I complained about him. Anybody got any other suggestions??
