With everything you have been through and the amount of pain meds you are on, I agree with straydog it is time you were under the care of a pain management doctor. You know I would just about think that maybe you might be better off with an implanted pain pump! I know that is a drastic step, but you are really on allot of meds, and if they are not working, I just can't help but think that maybe a pain pump would be the answer to giving you better sustained pain relief????? I do know that it takes allot less pain mecication to give you adequate relief. In any case you need to be under the care of a pain management doctor! I sure wish you welll Finally and I hope they you can finally get some adequate pain relief!
Good Luck to YOU
