    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Pain medicine): Left me with chronic pain from chest down to feet. Depression medicine, erectile dysfunction for a long time. Now I have decreased sex drive, low testosterone and a wife who is afraid to make love to me for the last 7 years. Forced to give up a great six figure job I enjoyed because I can't drive to work on Morphine and the other 23 pills a day I take. Now on Social Security Disability and getting a divorce soon. My wife and son don't want to deal with my depression and illness any longer. So after 16 years of marriage just was told by my wife that she had an affair with her boss for last 3 years. She wants a divorce eventually.

      I am so sorry, Roadking310. It seems so unfair.And coldhearted on the part of your wife and son to leave you when you need them most. I wish I knew what to say to ease the pain, but I do not. Please hang in there and know that there are plenty of people here and elsewhere who care how you're doing.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Dr. was great at surgical skills of taking out a golf ball size tumor with a syrinx the length of my back. Did not prepare me for the rehab and emergency surgery after I was paralyzed from a blood clot in my spinal cord. First surgery 4/30/07 13 hours. Emergency surgery on 5/1/07 10 hours!! Had to go to Kessler Rehab to learn how to walk again. Was there 9 days of intense therapy but was able to walk out with a cane!! Chronic neuropathy now due to the cutting into my spinal cord and filleting it to remove the tumor.
