Out for a curry on Friday evening and I got a phone call from UCLH, the duty Oncology Doctor.
They said my XRAY and MRI had been reviewed by the neurosurgery team and that I would not need surgery but I would need a brace to support my spine.
So good news that surgery is not needed but so many other questions.
They said I would get another call on Monday to discuss things further.
They also mentioned a place in Stanmore, after a quick Google I discovered that the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital is based here, so I might be looking at a quick trip here to have the brace fitted? I suspect I have a lot to learn yet about this aspect of medicine!
