I have a big problem with my neck and over many months i met me Nuro surgeon last November but he did not have an MRI of my neck as the hospital had not sent it over. I informed him that the problems i was having in April have changed and things are much worse and may be a new MRI of my neck would be a good idea.
So i was back today, he looked at my MRI and was saying that it looks bad but not that bad, I pointed out that the MRI was old and i was having very little problems in my left aren it was all my right but now my left are is terrible. So a new MIR was to be made. It was at this stage he went on about my weight and i must lose weight now, today must be the day or they can not operate as Gisburne Park does have any IC unit and only one doctor on at night and if things go wrong then they could not do anything so i must lose weight. My BMI was much to high. Now that does not bother me i am a big chap and we did a life style change end of last year and my weight was dropping but the meds the doctor put me on make me prone to weight gain and i had gained weight. I have to lose two stone. not a lot for a big chap and i have colitis so i can lose that quite easily. white bread anyone.
My question is this.
If Gisburne park does not have the resources to deal with something going wrong then why would i even want to have the op there even if i lost 5 stone.
Or am i being soft.
ps by all means say it as you see it i can take it quite easily
It has not help not being able to walk very far, normally our holidays we are walking all day but the last one was rest and so will the next one lol
