Prolapse to discs c5 & c6
My brother has had chronic pain for 4 years from a work related injury.
He has herniated central prolapse to c5 & c6.
This injury is uncommon as the prolapse is internal and often presses on his spinal cord.
We live in Australia and he has not been able to successfully find a doctor who can help him. He has been given no hope for a cure and has only been informed of pain contol and medication for the rest of his life.
He is only 35 with a young family and the pain is now almost unbearable.
Please, do you have any information on treatment here in Australia or overseas? At this point in time, he cannot mentally cope with any more false hope.
We, as a family, are prepared to do whatever it takes to find him a cure so that he may lead a normal life.
I hope you can assist us with information and, please, the possibility of a cure.
I feel my brother is now in a desperate time in his life and look forward to hearing from you with some great news to give him.
Many thanks for your time.
