Hey Everyone,
In my adventures of dealing with my wrist problems, I came across some more links to low cost, or free health care options, prescription resources and that stuff, so thought that I would  post them......
Maybe they can help someone.....  - information about free hospital care.....    - may provide assistance with prescriptions  - National Alliance on Mental Health- prescription meds and mental illnesses Needy Meds- self explanatory
PLIF/TLIF Fusion w/Instrumentation L4-5 Spondololysthesis L4-5.Laminectomies L4-5, foraminal stenosis L3-4, L4-5, L5-S1, herniations L3-4, L4-5, L5-S1, central canal stenosis L3-4, L4-5 and L5-S1
POST OP CES 3/30-06
Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel, bilateral numbness legs and feet
Revision for failed Back surgery, pseudoarthrosis L4-5, hemilaminectomies L3-4, L4-5, L5-S1, bmp added to revision fusion, replaced two bent screws that were reversing out of vertebrae - August 2, 2007
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.
Avascular necrosis of left wrist- maybe hips too

As I read your post I thought of another option for dental care--dental schools. Look in/around your area and see if there are any dental schools, they need patients to train on. Sounds scary, but if all you do is get your teeth cleaned a couple of times a year it's worth it. Most low income people or people w/o insurance let regular cleanings go, but it's one of the most important things to keep up with. Bad oral hygiene can lead to heart disease and other serious health issues. No, not a dentist, but that's what my mother was hoping I would do for a living, "People will always have teeth, you will always have a job!"
