    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I had cervical disk removed/fusion in1996. Relief lasted a few(?) years
    and then returned and returned........after injections/nerve burnings/
    epiderals(sic).

    Relief lasts about two years. MD says nerves rejuvenate and creat
    the problem over and over.

    I exist on 4 / 5 7.5 vicodin a day + depression meds etc.

    Am scheduled for another round of injections on the 13th. This will be
    the 9TH time. !!

    Apparently this will be my life until I die. At least I CAN get some
    relief, if only temporary.
