Binki. My doctor filled mine out too, but it is only approved til September 12. I was feeling guilty for asking for a placard because at the time, my feet had not hurt for about a week. But it came back for a few days and I am just starting to feel better again. The pain clinic teaches that it is possible to lower the pain levels, but not eliminate them altogether. They also teach that there are two reasons for a flare: either you did something really stupid or you didn't do something stupid. In other words, sometimes you can't predict. I am hoping either I am better by September or they will let me renew.
Hope your new relief lasts a long while.
