Dear Dr. Whitworth.Thankyou so much for reading my letter. I need your opinion.I havea long medical history but I'll make it brief. In the past I fx the C-1 and have Brown Sequad Syndrome(r-sided weakness and l sided sensation).I also had a brain stem contusion with occipital nerve and cerrebelum injury.I now have a syrinx at C1-2,RSD to R hand,arm,shoulder with R shoulder drop and myofascial pain syndrome.I get severe ha at the base of my head,neck and upper thoacic region. They have tried,injections,blocks,TENS,PT etc. I can only lay down for a couple of hours at night cuz the pain increases with laying down.Now I have chronic pancreatis with insufficiency(I never drank)1/2 of my stomach removed now with dumping syndrome, and malabsorption of small intestines9the wall is vvery thick with narrow lumen.I have constant abd pain. I only weight 78lbs.I was on TPN but had to stop cuz it was affecting the liver. I take Subdue which is predigested but they aren't sure how much is absorped. ecause of my poor nutrition when my R lung collapsed it wouldn't reexpand. I had to have surgery. For others out there who don't understand how painful RSD is--I woke up in the OR screaming my R arm hurt-even tho they removed part of my lung,did a mechanical scrub and I had 2 chest tubes. They had to put me in a coma for 24hrs in ICU.Well I take 4percocets a day,1 fiorinal a day and i zoloft a day.Do you thing i can absorb these meds? I am not getting good pain control. I'm on SS disability but have to wait for medicare. We use the military drs. My primary does not think I need a pain clinic that he can handle me.Do you have any suggestions of what could work better for me.I am sorry this letter is so long, I know your time is sooo valuable Thank you, Cee
