Waiting for Pain Management

We are also waiting for pain management. It appears that Mom has another fracture at T6 which is really painful. The pain medications Mom currently has are no longer working that well so its time to get a fresh view from the pain doctors. If they ever come by my guess is that they will want another x-ray then they will want to do another vertebroplasty. Vertebroplasty puts liquid cement into the vertebra to stop the fracture and compression ... and to relieve the pain. Mom already has 4 of them.
