I'll 2nd that HB, hang in there! With another surgery you have to be a bit down in the dumps. There are days that pain drives me mad and then I get a couple good days, I guess that's as good as it gets. Good luck HB, I hope whatever course of action you take works out for you. I will be seeing my pain management dr to see if he will do a series of nerve blocks in my neck. They start out with temporary blocks to see which area works then do a permanent injection block. These shots are to stop the radiating pain down the shoulders chest and upper arm. The neat thing is these are not the giant nerve bundles that go to your fingers and toes but more surface nerves. That's all I know right now.
