sorry i haven't been in touch but i've continued to have trouble with my back.  saw pmdoc (pain management) today and he changed my meds from lortab and darvocet to percocet.  says it's 20% stronger and should help me handle the pain.  took one this pm and the pain is mostly tollerable.
i'm glad that you are feeling a "little bit" better.  that's a start.  (i chose to see the glass as half full).  i can't imagine what you are going through.  do you have any local (non-virtual) people who can help you while you go though this?  god i hope so!
take care and keep posting.

Hi Gaz,

This is really good news -- I've been worried about you.

Would you say that you feel better in relation to how you were feeling with earlier parts of this course of ect (which I know has been pretty bad for you at times), or in relation to that and also how you were feeling before the course started? I hope it's an "all round" better!!

Keep us updated! :)
