    For starters go through our FAQ... That should provide you with some information on how to get around here. And if you have any questions, just ask?
    What type of surgery are you having? The more information you can provide us, the better responses that you will get.

  • thanks everyone for being here. sometimes I wonder if there's anybody out there!
    I just joined this group. I have known about this site since it was launched and I have seen it grow dramatically.
    I also didn't know at the time that I would be challenged with chronic pain myself.
    I look forward to sharing experiences I have had that have been successful and I hope they will be beneficial to you, too, and learning from you. I have read many of the personal remarks.
    I joined the American Pain Foundation 2 years ago, another organization that is very helpful to help us live with chronic pain.
