                  Will do, need to get MRI of Cat Scan , and get ready. I’m so hoping this will work out for me, I’m a walker, and a fighter. I think this is my way out, until the battery dies in 10 years and MAYBE, something will come along to fix me, and everyone else! I’m single, and have the $$$$ to do it, I’ve got to go for it. Looks like insurance will cover a good part of it too.

                    Are you able to give us an idea of the cost, of what the procedure consists of and the duration of the different stages?

                      No idea on the cost, but first they do a week long study with an outboard stimulator, and if all goes well they do the implant. Should be very interesting.

                        We'll be thinking of you next month. Really hope you get good results.

                          Tomorrow I go for a Cat Scan with dye. My doctor was so blown away with what I brought to her she got on the phone to the west coast, and confirmed what I needed, and what they wanted. She could not believe what she was reading. I can walk with difficulty and never gave up any hope, even after I brought her countless things in the past for her opinion, She’s as excited as I am.
