I am writing this to try & save my wife & love of my life of 25 years.  After a devastating accident led her to a back fusion, a titanium cage, rods & bolts, there was severe nerve damage complications during the surgery which has left her with a diagnoses of RSD & disabled,  She has tried neurostimulation, hyperbaric chambers, opiates, & physical therapy.  Now she can no longer take any pain meds with Ibuprofen in them including Vicodin as her kidneys are failing.  There is a wonderful new breakthrough that INSURANCE DOESNT COVER called Ketamine Infusions that help reprogram the brain so it doesn't feel pain in the nerve endings.  Each treatment costs $2,000 with a minimum recommendation of 3 treatments.  I'm afraid I will lose her as she feels there is no hope left & she is only 57 years old.  She can't enjoy life much due to the chronic pain.  Only in the USA would you have to start a Go Fund Me page to get medical help.  I'm sorry I have to do this & we do have private medical insurance but sadly, it does not cover this procedure. I would be eternally grateful any help, no matter how small.  Thank you & God bless you.
