Thanks ShortE
I do take some pain killers and they work for half the day. the rest of the day it is very painful. My husband doesn't want me to increase the dose except if really necesary, so mostly I am left with having huge pain at the end of the day when the effects of pain medicine wears out.
My doctor is willing to prescribe me more pain killers. Taht is not a problem. And I am also little scared of the side effects and long term effects of too much pain medication that I try to control the urge to take more.
