: Dear Dr. Whitworth. At the begining of this year I asked you for help concerning my 21 year old daughter who has had RSD for 2 years in her ankle and later it spread to her hands. She has had 47 epidurals, radio frequency, a nerve stimulator placed in her thigh, and was on several narcotics including oxycotin and methadone. In March she was given a morphine pump trial and failed. Nothing was helping her, and to quote her Dr. "Well there is nothing left that I can do for you." In June I took her down to Corpus Christi, Texas to see Dr. Rhodes. She was able to walk wearing shoes for the fist time Since January. She is now off all narcotics. She has NO burning RSD pain in her ankle or hands. She still is bothered by the withdrawal from methadone. (Any ideas?) She also has some pain from bone cysts in her ankle, that we hope will heal in time. I am telling you this because I feel others need to know there is hope for RSD. Dr. Rhodes is currently looking for other Doctors to set up trials for his methods. I drove over 3,000 miles to his clinic and it worked.
: Thank you, Jim

Thanx for the info though. jax
