I would suggest that you try to reduce your dependance on opiates. Our philosophy is to identify the pain generators in the spine and to treat them appropriately.
Patients like you should ideally be seen in a Spine and Pain clinic that has several different specialists working together from Neurosurgery to Pain management.
A psychologist with experience in working with pain is also an important resource.
So please look for such a center near by where you can get high quality advice and treatment.
