Please do not give up on him. It is so hard for him and you, I know. Please keep encourage him to help him self. Exercise is so important to stay ahead of the pain. Eating greens is vital and avoid sugar at all costs it will add to his pain levels. Try to suggest a therapist I see one who helps cope with chronic pain, and I highly recommend it. Pain medicines are necessary for physical function however a therapist is vital to the emotional effects of chronic pain. He has to help himself to be of any help to others. Keep the faith my friend and just try to be as patient as possible. It will pay of greatly.
