Tuckamore I encourage everyone to avoid spinal surgery at all costs. My mom has severe DDD with stenosis so extreme it was dangerous. A Neurosurgeon that I thot was next to God did her surgery.. She had some backaches but no more severe pain. Surgery can be .......

philnoir Hi Friends. I've never used this feature before.

Thank you for your prayers, your thoughts and good wishes.

Right-side will be done on May 21 and the left side on 6/9. They're going to neurolyze the medial branch nerves to L2 - S1 on both sides. Yippee!

Finished RFAs, TPI, ESI. Adequately medicated so that I can return to the ranch for a few months. Glad to have a break from treatments. 01/15 - 1
