Hi Second chance, I hope this message comes to you at a good time. I see that the message that I just read was posted 2 years ago, and u still needed one more surgery, if you have already had it, i hope that you are recovering well. I am writing to you because i have a very close friend that just had surgery performed by Dr. Shay Bess. Her surgery was about 2 weeks ago and she is feeling very discouraged, and that they are not managing her pain very well, she said she cant do physical therapy in this much pain. I was hoping that maybe you could speak with her over the phone sometime soon. i feel that words of wisdom from someone that has been in the same shoes might help her in her recovery(attitude-outlook). please contact me and let me know, i also would like to know how you are doing? By the way, I read her what you had written about Dr. Bess and about your surgery and recovery, i think it helped some, but i feel that maybe you talking to her would be even better. Thank you and Bless you!View Thread
