Please seek a second and third opinion from other spine surgeons regarding this serious matter. If your symptoms are feeling life threatening, please go to the nearest ER department for treatment. I have a hard time believing there is nothing that can be done. Also consider seeking retribution for damages done to you by this surgeon.
