back and neck pain

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.
