Dr. Phophalia: Back in March, you helped me with a medical question after I tripped over a neighbor's dog and fell backwards and hit my head. You were right, I had a cat scan and the doctor said I had a concussion, contusion, severe disc degeneration and a lot of arthritis in my neck. I was scheduled to have re-do surgery on my foot and the doctor will not operate until all my symptoms of the concussion are gone. My foot is getting worse, it is not severe but getting to the point. Is there anything else you can recommend to me to speed up my recovery? Fortunately, there was no bleeding in the brain but I definitely suffered a concussion. Thank you!
