Thanks for the input SCI Nurse and I reluctantly agree that surgery may be my best option. i do think that if he plans to do the one side with sore that isn't blocked all the way that he should also do right side which has no sore but is 100% blocked just not sure if i should do one at a time or not...

This is imiliar to what is done for heart blockage etc... Short procedure, not much downtime.
