Thanks Slak I will keep that in mind.I will see what comes out of my Doc so far he has been brilliant he even went out of his way to get another Dr to come and see me about that disorder Arachnoiditis that has no cure and the pain is 24/7,the new Dr gave me a tablet to try and like 50% of the pain is gone I cant tell you how it feels to finally find a Dr that has hands on experience for a problem I have been trying to find answers to for the last 14yrs including 11 major orthopedic operations all for nothing.So I can say changing Hospitals can be beneficial. I still have to rest for a few weeks then I should have a better idea once they shock the heart.
