Group, you have been kind and helpful since I discovered this site a few weeks ago. I mentioned that I am facing amputation of a leg, after I have open-heart surgery. Now, here's the good news - parts of me still work very well! My newest dilemma is whether to take pain medication for my "bad" leg in the fervent hope that researches somewhere will find some form of treatment for APS, or just go ahead with the amputation?? It's a really tough decision (and I take 28 pills daily already, and sure don't want to become dependant on any thing. The meds I take keep my heart, adrenals and kidneys going. I have heard people sometimes get addicted to pain meds. I'd appreciate your input - thanks!!,
