    For Catfish Johnboy Austin!!! He is absolutely beside himself and frantic with pain, nausea and vomiting. Neurosurgeon has been called and faxed repeatedly but he is ignoring them.He told me his Mother came down and gave him a couple of nerve pills to see if that would ease his muscle spasms. Everyone who resides in Kentucky needs to start looking up Spinal Surgeons that deal specifically with the neck(Cervical) area. Some way we have to find a doctor that will take his case. I have asked him not to do something foolish and he promised me he wouldn't but folks when a patient is in severe severe pain coupled with nausea, vomiting and dry heaves which he says has been going on now for 10 days sometimes people just lose it because they just want so badly to have blessed relief. Please see if there is a Specialist nearby that is willing to take his case.This is URGENT!!! I have asked him if nothing else if he would be willing to come closer to me so my husband's doctor could treat him. I am deeply concerned!!!:sad2::sad2::sad2:

    I will continue to send prayers. But its as I have told John also, when its that bad he needs to go on the the ER until the neurosurgeon gets him in!

    We can all look up all the neurosurgeons we want but until he gets a Dr that will refer him to one they won't take his case on either. :sad2:

    More and more, like it or not, we are responsible for our own medical care. We have to be persistent in pushing our physicians when they are not aggressive enough in our treatment or are not taking our pain seriously enough!

    John, if you still are not getting anywhere with your general Dr. get another one hon!

    Thank you! Its not my family Dr... Its the neurosurgeon screwing me around. I'm gonna end up dropping him and finding another. I can get a referral anywhere that I can make it to no problem. He is great about giving me referrals. They have done all they can so far to get me in to him!!!
    Thanks and this madness has to stop!!! Sorry if I'm not making much sense...I'm heavily medicated right now! Thank You MOM!!! I Love You!!!
    Thanks to all that are praying for me,its greatly appreciated!!!

    John,

    Hang in there, bro! I would like to suggest this hospital. Please find a surgeon there and have your Dr. refer you to them. I can't say enough good things about them. This hospital is like no other in the nation that I have ever been to, always positive, they have financial ways to help anyone who can't afford to stay there or their families in the area, while they are there. Some of the families in the area even open up their homes to patients and their families, while there are motels that give cut rate discounts to patients. All of this can be found on this site about the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.

    While we were there in 2000, there was a Shah who was flown in from overseas with his bodyguards and given the best heart care available from them. So it is known all over the world for being a caring, expert hospital.

    Love and prayers, John. HANG IN THERE!

    Cheryl

    My Dr just said I need to go to the ER. They won't refill my pain meds yet but said I needed to go to the hospital and tell them Dr Ledford wanted me admitted and to see a neurosurgeon ASAP!!! Gotta get the ball rolling!
