my wife was scheduled for ifuse surgery on mar 7, however her dr called to inform us that bc of nepa will not cover it saying that it is an experimental procedure. we are at wits end. they say this is the only hope. she has had the following surgeries. discectomy, fusion of L3,4,5. spinal cord stimulator. then a second stimulator. 9 steroid injections. acupuncture ,physical therapy, drugs, and the last was 10 nerve endings burned in the s I joint. this was the longest lasting and most pain relief she has gotten. they are telling us that ifusion will imitate the burning of the nerves. however, bc of nepa says no its experimental even tho this has been done since 09.. tell us how to fight this.. please...
