This can be a touchy subject but lets look at the good side for a moment, and I am not trying to compare The Blend and look at all other things there is to treat pain as there is so many. I simply , for my knowledge and others, want to know how your quality of life changed between the time right before you got on pain medicine for a chronic condition and then after you were on it long enough / found right one for it to make a difference. I am not looking for a lecture on downside ( addiction, risks of morbidity, etc ( we should know this if we plan to take it)) of it in this post , just simply the benefits you experienced and how it mattered to you. Of course if it didn't help that is good information also, and its risks are valuable information no doubt so don't take it wrong that I want to keep this one to positive benefits. I will ask negative benefits later and how they weigh in your mind vs. each other.
Its something on table for me, but I am holding out yet with new job I don't know what the future holds and I certainly want to try it vs. SCS first if comes to that. Because if my doctor and work says I can take pain meds and it keeps me from going off disability again I will certainly be open to it. This post is certainly something I am thinking about now in case my decision to return to work is an epic mistake and my mind is going through scenario's.
