Help Me Have A More Joyful Life

Hi my name is John. I have been living with chronic pain for six years. After five spine surgeries the pain has continued. On a scale from one to ten the pain does not go lower than a four. I have had 2 fusions in my cervical spine and in my lumbar spine that have failed and I am no longer a candidate for another surgery. The only solution had been oral pain medications that also cause many side affects for me. the quality of life that I had was dim. Recently my doctor found a new solution in which I would no longer need to take oral medications. The procedure was a direct drug delivery pump. I did a trail run and it worked! The difference in the quality of life was like night and day. The pain was gone and I no longer had all the side effects that oral medications caused. That was the trial and I would like to schedule a permanent pump. However the co-pay will be $3,300.00 and is why I am asking for your help. I had lost all hope until I found this solution and I cannot afford to pay this amount. Please can you help me have a more for filling joyful life. I am only 61 years of age and have so many more years to live. I would like to be able to walk my dog more than a half a block or go for a long drive without pain and the need for oral pain medications. Thank you so much for reading my story and helping.
