hi and welcome to the support group -

Unfortunately we no longer have expert physicians on board for assistance. the support group is lay people who suffer from chronic pains.

I would suggest, if your wife is home (not sure if another physician would come to hospital) but seeking a 2nd opinion from either Orthopedic Spine Specialist or Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist - obtain all medical records especially hospital notes of surgery etc. and take to another surgeon to see what they suggest.

I hope and pray your wife gets better soon. keep us posted~~
