I had a right lobectomy on 2/22/08 and am still in pain and no medication seems to help at all. I`m on Percocet, MS Contin, Cymbalta, lorazepam, phenergan, and still nothing seems to work. But the doctors still do not know if this was caused by my valley fever, cancer or a viral infection. Where can I get answers since my doctor doesn`t seem to know why I`m still in so much pain, shortness of breathe and nausea all the time. Please give me some anwers of why this could be happening to me.
I would suggest that you need to request:
1) a copy of your operative pathology
2) consultation with a chronic pain specialist.
