Hi PA Lady,
Remember when I mentioned that there are some insurances being advertised on tv these days that an individual can purchase for themselves? Well, I just came across one of them again, and it's web address is www.CinergyHealth.com. For a single individual in Pennslyvania the cost would be around 241.00 and there is some prescript
ion coverage included as well. I don't know if this is something that might help tide you over as far as coverage goes , but it might be something to at least take a look at. If I can find any of the others that I have also seen, I will let you know.

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.
