I really need some input on this subject. first off I am sick and tired of being treated like I am a drug addict because I take pain pills. My diagnosis is DDD, I have had neck, back, shoulder, and 3 foot surgeries, with plates and pins up and down my spine. Now I am being told I need another neck surgery, but no way will I be guranteed that It will work any better then the last surgery. They also say possibly another back surgery. I have been taking Norco for the past 9 years, and all they have ever done was increase the amount. I now take 2 norco\'s 5 X a day, and that dosen\'t even touch the pain anymore. So I don\'t get much sleep due to my pain. I went to a new doctor this week, she was listed as a pain control doctor, found out she is a spine surgeon. wouldn\'t prescibe to me, the pain control doctor she referred me to is in her office and can\'t see me until the 21st, and my whole purpose to see her was to find out about the pain pump, and her comment to this was, thats only if I am throwing in the towel and giving up. Now they want all new MRI\'s all new Xrays and they are out of their mind if they think I will have another surgery. does anybody else been in or have a similar situation that can give me some input. If you haven\'t been through this you don\'t have any idea what this is like, so I would appreciate only those who really know.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
