Considered any cannabis?  May help with pain and appetite.  Hope you feel better.

 We've talked about it, but I would need the doctor to talk to us about it first.

 Yesterday I felt good enough to get the snow plow off the tractor move the medium wood splitter so I can get a load of wood in and start working up next winter's wood.Today I woke to feeling a lot better. I just hope it stays with me.

 Just an update, they changed my daily pain meds so that I take one kind during the day and the regular med at night. The day time med doesn't make me drowsy so I can function and get some work done. I figure I need to work to build my muscles back up. Every day seems to help me get better. I have learned to listen to the body, if I overdue it the next day is spent recuperating. Which is not fun. It's still one day at a time.
