I have a pain management doctor, he's the one who did the first two surgeries and blew it on both so I had a neurosurgeon fix the pain doctors screw up. it was my shrink that had those lovely words of encouragement.
My other problem is that I can't take any pain meds and still do the kind of work I do. my options are very limited, as far as I can tell.
Had problems (pain, bleeding, nausea) since age 13.
