no real change

I have noticed no real change in my condition over the past couple months. This is very frustrating. The pain is better than it was just prior to my surgery last December, but probably not much better than about a year or so before that. In my last visit to the doctor, he wrote me prescriptions for Synvisc and/or Cortizone shot. I need to get back to take another Xray to get an updated opinion from him. But it seems to me at this point (and apparently to the doctor and therapists as well) that I am not going to recover much more than I have within the near term without some sort of alteration. Hopefully I can find time to get the Xray before too long…
