i was on a regimen that was working for me, but I moved. My old doctor kept telling me I needed to find one where I now lived, but I couldn't. Finally that doctor went to another practice and now I can't get the pain meds that were proving effective. I have gained 130 pounds, so I weigh twice as much as I used to.
