    Hi Gail, sorry about the above got confused what i was doing. I have decided to go back to consultant next Tuesday to discuss any other options. I had a facit joint injection back in March and although there has been some improvement it's still not right (L5 disc is out). I hope you get your surgery sorted soon, take care deegree
