Hi Cindy ~ When is your surgery? Jeepers, 4 surgeries??? That's awful. That's the problem. Once we have ONE, we end up having to keep having surgery, one after another, after another, etc. etc. etc. It's a never ending cycle.
I've been in severe pain for 24 years and I'm sick of it. I've had 3 surgeries, there will be no more because for one thing, I'm inoperable. I have osteoporosis quite badly so they won't touch me, but I wouldn't let them anyway after the last time. It's because of a surgeon that I'm disabled now.
You cope with pain 24/7 cause you have to! LOL You don''t have much choice. You hope your doc will give you something to help ease it, and go from there.
What kind of surgery are you having? I wish you the very best! God bless and keep us posted. Hugs, Lee
