  • :) Thank You for sharing your incredible story. I was brought to tears just by reading it.Hope all is well now!
  • I am a 35 year old RN with a long history of seven serious car accidents, beginning in 1991.(Only one was my fault.)Have had 13 surgeies including ACDF C4-5,5-6 and with a follow-up surgery to try to clean up scar tissue and bone spurring that tuned into 2 surgeries due to a misdiagnosed Staph infection which of corse had to be debrieded. I now have no muscle or connective tissue for appx.3 inches by 2 inches in the back of my neck. I have exhausted every option to regain my life to the point that I feel I have to go back to the hospital where I believe I got the staph, and where I awoke from the surgery in the middle of the procedure. :jawdrop: just to let them finish me off! (omg it felt so good to get that out)HELP! :''( I m not making any sudden decisions, but also am feeling more depressed as the pain continues to ruin my life,can't work,no support systems, difficulty finding doctors willing to touch me with my history, ect. Hope to gain support and info here.Ty for listening and good luck to all. Take Care. I forgot to ask for info reguarding Opana, similar to what other med,se.
    from anyone who takes it rather than a pamphlet.Thanks...

    Thank you..
    I am very fortunate to be at a place where I can do so much more than I did 3-5 years ago.
    I've understood that my spinal condition, while chronic is not going to get the best of me.
    I have and will continue to fight chronic pain (The Beast) every day
