    Good day.So sorry about all the things u have been thru.going by d things u have said,u are well educated concernin ur condition and have been managed by a specialist. I want to counsel that u keep hope alive on the matter. I suggest u seek a second opinion,see anoda specialist,ortho surgeon,to get their opinion. U never know,they may think differently about having surgery.the doc can also put u on stronger analgesic.I appreciate ur doggedness.Wish u well!
