Hi Jack,

My father recently had spinal cord decompression surgery and is experiencing C5 palsy or so John Hopkins Neuro Surgery has stated. If possible, I think it would really help for my Father to speak to someone who has gone thru something similar. You can reach me at 914-826-7793. We would like to find out who you saw at the Cleveland Clinic. Please let me know if you are open to speaking to him. We have had a hard time lifting his spirits and he is very frustrated about the lack of use of his left arm. His surgery was in November and his right arm has improved. Thanks in advance, we just feel helpless.

Best,
Kelly

Kelly,

I saw Dr. Wilson at the Cleveland Clinic. He is not a neurologist, but works in the Adult Neurology Dept. and is very good. Unfortunately, he is in high demand and it takes months to get an appointment with him.

I am happy to speak to your father.
