i'm an old, returning member of this list and have extensive history in pain management and IV TPN. Sometimes it just comes to that, but thankfully I found a surgeon who was willing to go the extra million miles to make my last surgery in 2005 my last surgery. That's nearly 5 years of blisfull painfreeness! I'm just now starting to have problems again and losing weight, having pain, but not bad enough for surgery or IVs. I'm going to try the CAPPS clinic in Florida...I'll keep yall posted. I was in California but live in Arkansas now.
