well i did it and it went fine. the dr said that i have A MAJOR amount of arthritis in there, in fact, I have much much more than anyone my age then she has ever seen! I told her that i figured i did have some cause of my pain but didnt know how much. i also told her that the duragesic patches weren't working for me. and to be honest at this rate, i dont know how much longer i will be able to work. she said when you come back in on the 28th we WILL get you fixed up and change the patches and try something else. WOW! that alone made me feel better. my back and hip felt better for the time that it was numb and that's about it. i am right back to having some pretty bad pain. i am at work today but dont know if i will be able to take it all day long or not. we will see. but i am alive and here so at least that part is good. thanks to all of you and your wonderful support! you guys are the greatest!
