I'm so glad to see you back! I do enjoy writing to you by email as well. Having you back is wonderful. I am sorry to hear of the latest developments. As far as the pain meds go, maybe the Dr. needs to try some others on you until they find the right combination ? I can understand the frustration, it took me awhile before I got stable on meds that worked for me as well.
