Hi Jennifer. I wanted to reread your post. My back is feeling better but my hand is still numb and tingling. Do you think they will do another MRI when I get there? I’ve had one I think on August 16th. I don’t know what to expect. I feel like my primary care doctor is upset that I chose to go to Mayo instead of waiting the the doctor from summit orthopedics to come here. I would have had to wait until October 17th. I had to get some forms filled out for me to get FMLA approved. She didn’t answer all the questions so I had to have her redo it and then she was crabby. I’ll be so glad to have this taken care of. It’s so stressful not knowing what to expect. If you have any suggestions for questions I should ask the physiatrist and surgeon I’d really appreciate it. As the time gets closer to going there I get more nervous. Thanks for your help.
