Good news Patti! I am glad that this is working for you. It may help others down the road to know that this is an option.
You can do my grocery shopping for me, I hate it! LOL I also have to take someone with me, by the time I get from the handicapped parking to the doors, I can barely stand up. And using my wheelchair doesn't work either since I can't push the cart that way.
Anyway, I am glad that you were able to enjoy a night out with your husband! He must be so excited to see how this is making it easier for you to join with him on outings again.

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
