This forum category can at times be a catch all for items that are not directly surgical related and have to deal with post surgical discussions and how we can all stay the best we can.
Topics such as:
- New treatments
can be discussed here. Last night, I watched a movie, "The Edge" Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin starring. They were stranded in the North Mountains and were being tracked by a man eating Grizzly bear. It was interesting to see all the different things that this man did to survive.
And in a sense, survival is the story of our lives. For people suffering from chronic pain and have had their surgeries, its what we can do to prevent future problems.
Future problems will come up. I personally have been going through some flareups for the past two months. More intense, causing higher pain levels and the need for more pain medications. So, I am going through the various tests and will be doing a lot more.
For me, initially it was frustration about having another problem, but now, its more to the point on what I can do to minimize the problem.
We've all been there or at some time will be. So the more we know on how to deal with these situations, the better
