Welcome to Healing Well Chronic Pain Forum. First thing I want to tell you is YES I will say a prayer for you for you for your surgery this Friday! And I do hope every thing works out for you and the stimulator helps you!! At least little anyway! Because when you have chronic pain every little bit helps! I am sorry for everything you are going through and the pain you have, but with that said, I am extremely glad you have come to this site and joined this forum! Lindaloo told you right, I totally agree that this site has some of the most caring people that you will find any where on the internet! The folks here are not just caring, but also compassionate, and we are always ready to lend you our ears and listen to you! We might not be able to cure you, but you can always share your frustrations and pain, with us, and hopefully by sharing, maybe,.... just maybe, we can help lighten that burden that one always carries from having chronic pain! You are nolonger alone with your pain, at least not when your here on this forum, You now have friends, that can empathize with you, and share in your hopes and frustrations and pain! Hopefully you will stick around and post and share, and be a member of our Chronic Pain family.
Again Sweetpea, I Welcome you! and I wish you well! And Good Luck on that permanent insertion of the stimulator on Friday!
