    When I went to the doctor back in march 2010 a MRI showed a cyst compressing my spinal cord so I was informed. I had surgery to remove the cyst. September 2010 a doctor with the Social Security Determination informed me that I may had suffered permanent nerve damage prior to surgery. Something my doctor never metioned or discussed with me. In December 2011 at my disability determination hearing my lawyer informed me that the MRI back in march of 2010 showed that I had 3 herniated disc and that I had narrowing of my spinal cord due to those disc as well. Now my doctor never informed me of this. Was he suppose to inform my and offer some type of treatment ? Being that I am in constant pain now after the surgery it could have been the herniated disc all the time causing the problems I still have.
