I returned home about four thirty from my pain management doctor.

She informed me that do to the location of the pain in my back(facet joint)

there is a 98% chance some of my hardware has came loose.

The pain and facet joint are located at L-5 S-1 so according to Medicare rule

changes we must know if the hardware is coming loose.

If so the surgery to fix my  hardware should able to stop the pain.

If I do not get 85-90%  pain relief she can shut down the facet joint nerves.

So now I wait to get in to see a neurosurgeon.

If surgery happens it will be number eight.

Please keep me in your prayers.

I will keep you posted.
