Yes, I arrived in your shoes over a year ago when I had my final surgery. What you really need now is a competent Pain Management physician, not a surgeon. I know how hard it is to believe that you will never be cured (and this in the 21st century!) but that's what most of us are facing. With a combination of narcotic pain relievers and the help of a fantastic pain psychologist, my life has gotten so much better. I've learned to get through the bad days, and make the most of the good days. And frankly, I now have more good days than ever before. Best wishes in your search for less pain. :-)
