    Ur consultant should have done this . I'd say a neurosurgeon is yr best bet. If u can be referred to one he will take a look at images as long as there not more to old. My doctor referred me to a private hospital via nhs to a top neurosurgeon. He's done more for me in the last 2 month s than some nhs hospital did in 2 year. A spinal fusion booked for after the new year 20 + of suffering and already one emergency operation, as well as loads of therapy s and spinal blocks this is my last hope
