Impossible to: Say without more details. Ask your pcp the same question, he would have all the details and a much better answer for you.

What: Is getting worse? Would need more information. Please call your primary doctor to ask what you should do, notifying them that you are waiting for a surgery consultation appointment.

Doubt it: U really need a medical doctor to keep tract of everything that goes on w u. S/he is the only one that gets all the information from everyone. You have have significant previous surgeries and are on gabapentin. Surgeon can help with bypass related items but u really need to get a pcp.
