  he stated that my continuing low back pain was from sacroilica and iliac joint pain and lumar sprain/strain..prescribed an AFO brace and cane...it is now 8 mos later and W/C wants to settle...I have constant, at time (65% of time) disabling low back pain...right ft remains numb as does outer right calf...my question is does this make sense?  My neuro said I may/will require spinal fusion in future and am at increased risk for hern. another disc...because it is W/C I cannot return to my Neuro for test..and W/C would not consent to a surgical consult EVEN with a different Surgeon..what do you recommend? thanks so much for your help!!!
