Hi Peggy, I am happy to see you back! I have missed your posts. You always have something helpful to post. I am sad to hear of your problems and pray they get better soon! I, too am very frustrated at the news about intergel. I am ready for this all to be over (I'm sure everyone else is too). I am not a very patient person when it comes to pain. I go to the pain clinic Monday for some kind of block. Hope it helps. The patches help, if I take it easy. If I feel good at all Taking it easy is the last thing I do. Oh well, live and learn. Welcome back Peggy. I haven't been on since Thursday and I'm trying to catch up. Teresa
