My brother is very unhappy right now he broke his ribs, most of them and they tried putting a metal plate with screws to put them back in place it didn't hold and additional ribs were broken. The problem is they are now putting him on pain management in an attempt to get him off his pain pills he has to sit in a chair most of the time because it is so painful for him to move, he says he has no quality of life. He had to get two shots in his back to block the nerves. He doesn't want to get high he just wants to get up. I realize we have a drug epedemic but it seems wrong to take pain medication away from someone in so much pain.
