    First Neurosurgeon Appointment - what to expect?

    Hi,
    I have my first surgical consult tomorrow. I am wondering what will happen on that day. I am also wondering what questions I should ask?

    I have severe stenosis C5-6 with osteophyte, spinal cord compression and herniated disc -- problems all between C4-7.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Lisa - stay calm and think about things you've read on this board - that should give you questions to ask. Make sure they don't rush you for decisions and that any course of action sounds logical. If at all possible have another set of eyes and ears with you.

    The first NS consult I had the office felt like a "factory", while my case was urgent, I did have time for another opinion and was a lot more comfortable with the atmosphere at the second ns

    Stay calm!!
