    I don't have much to say to help...but I have had 3 surgeries on my right shoulder. One about 11 years ago was an A/c seperation and 2 rotator cuff surgeries in 2 years. It was after the second surgery that I really "blew-up" with this DD, tho I had had some symptoms for several years before. Thought it kinda weird that the 3 of us have the same surgery in common....????

    I am very curious as to the amounts of the meds you are taking.

    How much oxycontin: Klonopin:
    Zoloft: Lidocain patch:

    I have only heard of the Duragesic patch for pain. What does the Lidocaine patch do except help that one certain area? My kids have used it when they have have to have surgery and a needle put in their hand. But I don't know about it otherwise. It is extremely important to know what dosages you are on to share any of my experiences with you. I am not one to tell others what to do just my experience. I also went to a Pain Clinic for three weeks, eight hours a day once.

    I have also had a rotator cuff problem and taken the most of the meds you mentioned at one time or another over the last 12 years but knowing how much you take and how may times a day would help.
