Guys, My prayers have come true. I have found a the most wonderful pain doctor. I live in the Memphis Tennessee area. It is hard to get an appointment but be persistant because it is worth it. I have been bed ridden for so long and then ended up with Mono in the early spring. Since I have been going to him I have landscaped around my pool. I am exercising (not in pain) everyday. He is a God send. He has written many articles regarding the use of opiods to treat pain and is a partner against pain. People there is hope for us. Let me know if you want his name. His articles can be read on the web. Even they make you feel better.
