    Thanks Jackie.

    Haven't been contacted for the CT scan yet, and I'm thinking any possible surgery would be Spring-ish, as COVID is straining resources right now anyway. We'll see if I survive...

    I finally had my appointment with Dr Fry, the original surgeon who did my fusion in 2005. I had printed out my original correspondence from the top of this thread, ending at "today I am still plagued...

    Wow...

    Thanks for this Linda.

    That was my guess---not many know how to get it just right. Oh to have it to do over again. Only had the surgery because I couldn't work due to the pain, and wasn't happy...
