Welcome from me as well. I am also a bit concerned with some of the medications that you are on....and the what appears as doubling of some of them for what might be a single condition. I see for example that you are on two different urinary problems, and as far as I know, they aren't usually prescribed that way. And the pain meds as well.
It might be prudent to discuss all of your meds with your doctors and make sure that they all know that you are on all of these meds.
I'm sorry that you found yourself needing to join us, but glad that you did and that you found us.

I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
