Texas, I'm so happy for both of you and hopefully you may be able to relax a little and your pain levels will go down a little.
I haven't tried your new med myself so I can't help you with that. Have a low tolerance to any pain med. I did try skelaxin however and it did help me a lot. Wish I would've taken it when they actually gave it too me.
I just noticed where you live--I spent three years there, owed a flyfishing lodge along the river! In fact my daughter and I just went back there a couple weeks ago and camped out for old times sake. It's a small world!!
Keep us posted and I hope things continue to go well for your wife! Get some rest!
