I had three injections all of which worked for a few days to two weeks then stopped. The excruciating pain returned and only Vicoden 5 mg 3-4 times a day controlled the pain. Vicoden at that dose is the lowest dose prescribed. it worked perfectly for several years and doctors refused to prescribed opioids for fear of losing their license. My sister recently died of throat cancer and she complained constantly of pain. She died with unrelieved pain. As a cancer patient she was prescribed Morphine 2 mg. every 6 hours. That is beyond ridiculous but keeps our doctor’s license safe. Our doctors are violating their Hippocratic oath – Do No Harm. They had added a caveat “except when the government is breathing down your neck. Then the patient be damned. I am glad this helped you Randy. I don’t know your clinical status but I am sure it differs from mine. Do you have severe and crippling arthritis?
Thermage® is a non-surgical procedure that promotes the growth of new collagen in the face and body, which helps skin appear more youthful. It is a medically tested and proven effective cosmetic procedure that uses radio waves to target deeper layers of tissue under the skin while leaving the top layers of skin unharmed. As a result, there is not down time and patients can resume normal activity immediately. During the following few months after the procedure, collagen begins to rebuild in the patient’s skin and tightening of the treated area occurs.
