Default Painless future, hopefully.

Been taking the most powerful painkillers for so long they have no effect any more so I made an appointment with a Specialist Surgeon who severs the nerves which the pain travels along to the spinal cord. My daughter knows a woman who had this treatment & is now living a normal pain-free life. I thought stem cell therapy was the answer but it has been a big disappointment so I'm opting for this radical nerve cutting operation Wish me luck. James jj777746

Knowing what pain is like, I wish you the very best of luck, actually I hope that luck doesn't enter into it. I hope that the surgeon uses all possible skill for a perfect outcome.

Good luck James. Double what Harry said! Don't forget that the damage that triggers the pain is still there, so don't over do it after the surgery.

That sounds like one of those procedures that can go either way. I hope it goes well for you James.

I have never heard of that,I hope the best for you. The trouble with pain killers is that they loose their deadening power as you body gets used to them and also they are addictive. I am anxious to hear about this procedure and the results. Good luck.

Oooo, bummer. Never heard of that either. Good luck.

My father had bursitis in the shoulder. Totally unlike him, but he started getting acupuncture for it. I didn't even know he knew the word. Worked, he'd go back about every 6 months.

Me, I have a lot of pain. Headache 24/7 since 1981. Bad joints, bad back. Took pain killer when in the hospital in 2000 for a colon resection, but that's pretty much it, otherwise I don't take pain killers, even if prescribed. Instead I meditate, been doing that for probably 40+ years, and it works pretty darn well for me. So some of you other guys might want to look into it.
