: Hi Lynne,
: Ive had a spondy since AUG.Ive been to PT and was discharged after 4weeks because of not making progress.Also saw a neurosurgeon,who spent 5 WHOLE MINUTES with me and said he would not operate.I guess my reflexes,and other signs they determine the severity of the spondy werent severe enough.My PCP nor specialist would not order an MRI which really upset me.At present day , I continue to be in moderate pain which no one seems to take seriously.I think it all has to do with the HMO.My pain is from the L5-S1 down myleft hip to the back of the knee.Im educating myself on lumbar stablisation exercises to help prevent further disc damage.
: Well, theres part of my story,I could go on , Im really upset right now.I would like to hear all about your first symtoms,dealings youve had with the so called medical professionals,pain description,changes youve gone though with the pain over time,where is the location of your spondy,your current situation to date.
: Feel free to Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
: Hopefully we can help each other.
: Take care,John K
