I am about 7 months Post-op and on Bi-mix injections.  They are working quite well but I have noticed a slight curvature which concerns me.  I do not notice the same curvature with the VED and rings. I am afraid that it will get worse over time.  I stopped the injections temporarily until I see my Uro.  From what I read, there is really no cure for it.  Anyone out there with a similar experience that can possibly shed a little light on the subject?

Bootheel:

There is a short chat string on this site that started on 6/27/08. Not sure if the info there will help. We seem to be all over the place. Boy, that kcragman guy was such a downer back then!

Good luck,
