Approve back surgery so I can keep walking before it is to late.

This petition had 505 supporters

In two years I have had two back surgery's and now the surgeon says to be able to continue to walk I need to have another surgery. The surgery that I need is called a SI joint implant. The insurance will not approve it saying that there is no guarantee I will have a better quality of life and it is experimental. This surgery is done around the world and the spine surgeon that will do mine is known world wide .With  this surgery I will be able to stand straight and be able to walk more than 200 feet as of now I can not walk more than 200 feet ,go shopping, take walks with my husband , I can not sweep or vacuum or anything now because of the pain I am in. Dr. Jorge Isaza , my surgeon said this surgery is the only thing that will help me and I need the surgery to get better. Without the surgery I will never get better and I am  not ready to give up and have to use a wheelchair because of not being able to walk.
