: Dear Ruth, Cessy and "Gagged",
: I'm sorry to hear about yall's situation.
: I too have nerve damage from epidural in surgery.
: I had lung cancer and had half a lung removed.
: Since then, (19 months ago) I've been going to
: a pain clinic and living on pain pills. The thing that
: gets me, is that they seem so nonchalant about
: it. They (doctors) just say "it happens sometimes".
: I asked if the pain will ever go away, but can't get
: a straight answer. I had 3 epidurals during the
: surgery - they couldn't get them to work. My
: sister was with me and she said they were just
: "boring" around in my back trying to get it to
: work.
