Good for you!!!

DT that is excellent. It sounds like you are aggressively managing your pain and moving on with your life. Good for you!!!

But wait, you didn't say anything about narcotic pain medication. I suspect that you are not using any pain medications and that is even better.

I have recently been getting more interested in meditation as a pain management tool. I am learning that it has many more benefits and it seems that most everyone could improve their life with meditation. I will certainly check out the Youtube videos that you recommend.

Binaural beats? That is a new one on me but it sounds very interesting. I am just now learning to meditate but when I get very relaxed I can feel my heartbeat. Is that similar to binaural beats? I'm going to investigate this further.

DT thanks for taking the time to check in.
We can all benefit from your experience.
