Thanks Jen, It certainly appears that not all neurosurgeons are the same! So far my neurosurgeon appears to be on the ball. The first neurosurgeon I saw was full of himself and wanted to send me for a heap of VERY expensive tests (we had to ask his secretary how much it would all cost and even she couldn't tell us and had to ring up to find out). He told me about a woman who had what looked like a tumour but had completely vanished before surgery and he was unable to determine what it was as he did not do any tests. I got the feeling he was wanting to use me as a research project - at my expense! Thank you for sharing your story about your partner and your sage advice. Good luck with your upcoming battle. Dee
