Hi there ~

I understand your situation. It is difficult to have such a condition and I am thinking that medical marijuana may be for you. You need to see a pain specialist and a psychiatrist and get a psychotherapy consultation for the medical marijuana, only after having used everything for pain that can help other than marijuana. I hope this is the case. Hope you a good recovery. Take care and have a lovely day!
