Hi,Eunan, I too was in your situation. I saw my GP in the morning was admitted straight away had an MRI within 2hours. I was then in an ambulance with flashing lights etc and taken to my local Neuro hospital where they said that if they dont operate that night I could be paralysed.I am so surprised they have left you.I was doubly incontinant and have been left with nerve damage to my legs and bowels.Six years on and I still have the nerve damage and have to take 200mgs of morphine and have a replacement disc. I didnt realise how serious the condition was but was so grateful to my GP for acting so quick. I would push for some treatment ASAP as it is a serious condition. I wish you all the best. Sally
