Hello fde11 and @baltopat86, I just thought of something. Did you tell your neurologist office to put you on a wait list to get you in sooner should someone cancel and a spot open for you? It doesn't hurt to let them know how severe or intolerable your pain is. I worked in healthcare for 20+ years and know the system and how it works. I just hate that you're in so much pain. I get it! I'm facing my 4th back surgery. First three were outside the spinal canal but this one will be inside to free up more room for the spinal cord and nerves. You know about that. My Neurosurgeon keeps telling me that I'm so high risk which I know I am. I'm going to try to put this off as long as I can but am already losing some function. Next to go is my legs and I'm already having loss there. It's never straight forward, always a now-win and risk in some way/s. That's where prayer comes in for me! I ask the Lord to give me direction and to make it clear b/c I'm pretty dense! LOL! I wish you all the best, I really do. Take care and warmest regards, Sunnyflower
