Intractable Pain (IP) Survivors Handbook...

Just found this brilliant manual! Now I know I'm an IP patient. I'll not allow myself to become undertreated again! Please read. It might save your life and your relationships!

Has anyone read?

Wondering if others are reading this document. Although humbling I found it very helpful. My husband read it, and now we think I might need to try some of the doctors suggestions regarding supplements. Also made me really appreciate my PCP whom is treating me. I've sent him a copy.

Boy is this me.

My Dad sent me this article weeks ago and I just read it tonight after my initial PT appointment. We talked about needing to know triggers and relievers, no matter how small. We discussed diet. I told her I only like carbs and sweets, milk with frozen fruit and protein powder. I told how I hate protein and on and on.
This book is my life and I wish I read it earlier. I want to get my surgeon to read it as well and see if he agrees.

6th back surgery was pedicle subtraction osteotomy in Jan 2012. Pluses, I can shuffle to the WC on my own, I have a supportive family. Minuses, pain has yet to be controlled.
