Brian, what caused the worst kind of pain you’ve ever had? I’m sorry to be disrespectful, but if you’ve ever woken up in the recovery room following multi level spinal fusion, with rods and screws through your vertebrate,, there is no breathing exercise in the world that’s going to touch that pain. Get teal for a moment. And Marshall with the fusion, any doctor that prescribed all those meds at once should NOT be practicing. You’re lucky to be alive. I think all of us with moderate to severe chronic pain can agree there’s really no magic fix out there for us and that we are NOT simply drug seekers as many like to think of us.
