Hello everyone. Its me again. I hope everyone is doing well. Man has it been a long road for me. Unfortunatly to no avail so far. I had my second back surgery on 3.6.09 my first was a diskectomy in aug of 08. Turns out I was told that the first surgeon messed me up,did not have credentials to operate in my state so he had to write everything off for 2008... yes I know I gonna sue his ass. The main reason I am here today folks is as usual... "chronic pain" I still can hardly walk seems to be getting worse everyday. The bulk of pain is still in my legs . The burning, stabbing , numbness, unbearable chronic pain. I am so tired of the drugs percocet,oxycontin,valium,neurontin,cymbalta,amrix, msconton, morphine. Nothing helps the pain except herbal aroma therapy if you know what I mean( now dont guys start to judge me please). I have PT X3 per week and 1 day is in the pool/spa, i like that! I now have to see a shrink 1 a week for my depression. I just dont know how much more I can take. I cant do my exercises because the pain in my upper legs is so bad I am back using my cane again. So I need everyones help here. I see my lovely pain mngt. doc on 5.13.09 and plan on telligng her no more of those pills I want somthing that will work. So guys I you all to post what meds may helpp or any ideas you may have for my pain management. Oh, they want to settle my workers comp case from this injury after over 1 year that is in 3 weeks wish me luck. I hope everyone is well.

thanks in advance...Brian
