My wife lives in constant pain and has had three knee

Customer Question
surgeries, one arthroscopic and one...
My wife lives in constant pain and has had three knee surgeries, one arthroscopic and one remedial. None of the surgeries relieved her pain. She takes percoset on a daily basis but never seems to get enough sleep even after taking sleeping pills. An overactive bladder only exacerbates the problem. She has been through a lot with extensive rehabs after each surgery. I feel so sorry for her as she is in a state of depression and has gotten no relief. I would appreciate your advice.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
