I am from Nebraska and I have a horrible time getting pain medication. I've had 2 lumbar fusions and have degeneration above the surgery and arthritis in surgery area and bone spurs and degeneration and spondylitis c3 throughout c7. I have a hard time getting pain meds cause I am also be polar and they assume that I will abuse the medication which has never been the case. Very frustratef. Not sure how to handle this situation.
