I see three posts from you that to my reading deal with related or same issues and problems. As I said on one of those, I know you have the strength to work your way out of these horrendous health problems.
That said, I don't think most of the people who visit this forum have a lot of knowledge about dealing with pain. You may get some help in that area by making a post on the MedHelp Pain Management Community.
Hi thank you for your comment i will try looking in the pain community but i think i need to look into something like artery sites or i don't know maybe the pain site might be able to ansewer what happened to me because i am very tired of having surgery i just had surgery on monday it didn't go so well either. I have cad all me siblings have had heart attacks my middle brother had 4 stents and he was back to work within a week and my baby brother had 2 stent's and he was back to work within a month i have had 1 stent replaced 7 times within 2 years and not able to go back to work. so i am really frustrated and angry. But thank you for your comments and you have a great day and god bless.Sincerly;Redeena
