Back to Tramadol not so good

After all the nausea from too strong of patch I came back to tramadol but the pharmacist was not sure that it would be enough and he was right. I have added celebrex and 8 paracetamol a day. I have had the heat pack on regularly but still I am in increased pain. I just wish I could stabilise the pain. It seems we all have the same problem juggling medications to try to just get through each day without going mad. It is a horrible disease that will not let up. I am also scared the when I see the ortho surgeon he will send me off to physio or something I have done over in the past and didn't repair the damage.
So here I am again not knowing what to do. Maybe back to the pain specialist for more injections and another drug? I will see how I go this week. Allan
