Went to spinal orthopedic specialist this afternoon. Wasn't sure what he was going to say already, but I just went with it. At my last appointment back in May of last year, he originally said that my injury isn't fixable. So today, he asked me if I wanted back surgery. My response was No because of all the chronic issues I've had with MRSA. That would be the last thing I needed. I'm just wondering if it's not fixable, why the hell did he ask me that question? So, got other options that we can do. He did recommend an RF ablation which I'm hesitant to do at the moment. They could also do a neuro-ablation for the SI joints which I'm also hesitant to do. I've got a tens unit on order so I'm going to give that a shot for several months. If it gives me good relief, great. If not, I'll discuss doing the RF ablation in the future.
Just needed to get that off my chest.
