We've tried everything..
Doc wanted to try this because nothing else
was working.Rich has been in this cycle for 5 mths..
and our doc (he is a neuro doc)is great..very willing to try what rich is willing to try..
Percocet, vicodin, darvocet, demoerel suppositories..
didn't take the pain away..sometimes might help to ease the sharpness
of it. I feel that once he tries a med and it starts working the damn demon
figures a way around the meds. sounds strange but thats the way I feel somtimes..
Our doc keeps very good tabs on Rich.. we see him at least once a week.
I talk to his nurse every other day and leet her know how Rich is doing.
We've been going to him for 5 yrs.. so weve built a good relationship.
Actually if it wasn't for the doc and his great caring of Rich , we would not
have known (Last year) that Rich had a brain tumor.
Since the surgery any problems that Rich has the doc is there for us.
Rich has tests ALL THE TIME.. I can't say enough about our Doc..I know that we are very very
lucky to have him. Thank you so much for your caring and understanding..
IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!!
Bear hugs and kisses,
