Glad you are getting a consult. Sounds like you have a plan that will hopefully lead to an end to your ongoing pain. Chronic pain is so wearying and can made one desperate.. especially when you had this surgery to resolve problems. Sorry you are still struggling. No, Josephine is definitely not a robot. She is a real person with many members with issues to address on all forums within BoneSmart. Surely you can understand that real people can make errors...not to mention Jo could ask these same questions at different times in recovery to refresh activity and pain levels. I'm sure she will be glad to know you are getting your issues addressed through a second opinion.
