    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    She saw her pain management specialist this morning. He is scheduling the second rhizotomy to be done on her left lower back. They think it can be done around the 28th of this month.

    The pain is still lower in the area where the facet nerves were burned. The rest of her back is still painful. We will see how she does after the second procedure.

    The pain management specialist said this is just for lower pain and a bit more functionality. He does not think she will be able to work at they type of job she had ever again. This means the injury caused permanent disability which will be addressed in another hearing.

    Thanks for asking, and thanks so much for your prayers.
