Last week John met with a neurosurgeon to go over his MRI and see what can be done about his back pain. 2 of his discs are severely deteriorated with one of them pretty much gone. There isn't much they can do about that. He also has a lot of nerve pain with it that goes down his leg. Looking at the MRI, it seems to be one or two culprit nerves. Today, we will go back to St. Mary's to get injections into those 2 nerves. I guess it is a little different than an epidural steroid injection as they are actually putting the injection directly into the nerve. Sound like it will be very "uncomfortable". Please be praying for John and the Doctors today.
