Sep 2, 2016 · Idiopathic Subglottal Stenosis - is there a current discussion group? in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

My perception there is no money in the cure, there’s more money to be made by the continued treatment. I wish you well and will pray one day there will be a long time cure

That person is not a father. A father does not do that to there children.
Please take care of yourselves. You do not have to see or be in contact
with that person. Go back to court, voice your No, You and your sisters do
not want to have any further contact. I was a Drug And Alcohol Counselor. A
8 yro boy was molested and abused by his father. The 8 yro molested his 2
yro sister and tried to drown her. The system failed them and the father
had visitation rights. I am not longer a Drug Alcohol Counselor

Jul 19, 2016 · Has anybody had an implantable neurostimulator for chronic pain? in Spine Health

My opinion, there’s no money to be made in the cure, only in the treatment.This is the best country in the world. Why is medicine, treatment so expensive. Other countries you pay for treatment,medicine little or no cost, and insurance through your taxes.Why not in the US. I use a Tens on my leg after negative relief three back surgeries and now numbness in my left leg after last back surgery.

I was in the process of getting a temporary one. I had to tell them to stop. I do not wish my horrible experience on anyone. The information and my perception Mayo will be your best place to have this done .

Jun 20, 2016 · Has anybody had an implantable neurostimulator for chronic pain? in Spine Health

I was going to have a temporary one placed to see if it will work for me My personal experience, and opinion, do not get this done.The pain and discomfort I went through is not worth the risk of being paralyzed. Please understand that I have not had any treatment from Mayo,I am not suggesting or saying anything negative about Mayo. I have had 3 back surgeries L- 2-3,3-4,-4-5,fusions with braces and screws. After the thrid surgery things became worse. My left leg inside from my groin to knee is painful and numbness. My left knee is painful. It feels as if I have no leg. My leg has given out, and I have fallen. I use a knee and back braces. I am taking Hydrocoydone and other medications.I tried shots in the spine with negative results. I also use Aspercreme, at night, this gives me relief to sleep,and function during the day. I am totaly disabled, and was forced to retire. I hope this works. There is no money in the cure, only in the treatment. My opinion

Mar 28, 2016 · Spinal fusion of L1-4 and managing pain. What works for you? in Spine Health

ladidyt thank you for the reply, the surgeon was orthopedic.I was referred to another orthopedic surgeon.and I was also referred to a neurologist to test my leg, all in this same  group of professionals. As I reflect back on all of this,  there is no money being made for the cure, only for the treatment. I am still paying for the treatment,physically, mentally and out of pocket. I should not have had the first surgery to (correct) the herniated disc.
