Update on Dad
Dad had his 6 week post op appt. today, and it was mostly good news. He still has quite a bit of pain, which the doctor said is "typical", but the surgeon does want Dad's pain doctor to do cortisone injections in the Sacroiliac joints on either side of the fusion incision. These joints are often inflamed after fusion surgery. He is to wear his brace another 6 wks and have more PT, this time at a facility and not at the house. There have been lots of problems with the insurance paying for the medicine the doctors are prescribing. Dad is also experiencing significant pain in his foot due to the neuroma that was not surgically removed. We would appreciate your continued prayers for healing, patience, wisdom, and encouragement. Thanks.
