Hi Trouble, how you are feeling a bit better.
I think it would be a good idea to have your Father-in-law look at the MRI results and I'd get a copy of the results and the Dr's chart notes from this last visit and maybe all of your visits so he can read through those as well.
I have scar tissuse on my kidney and they had trouble getting in on the last operation so I got an extra scar - just what I need! I also have some on scar tissuse on my knee (from a ski accident) which still hurts and I don't know if it is the pin or tissuse. Moist heat and light massage seem to help some.
When I am at the Doctor's I have learned to ask "So, then what are all my options?" That seems to get MOST Doctors to tell me what they are in plain English!
Hope you can find some relief and that your Father-in-law can get it figured out!
Oh - Your name reminds me of that cat Stevens song - "Trouble set me free, I have seen your face and it's too much, too much for me" Great song and in one of my favorite movies - Harold & Maude
