Welcome to Living With Facial Pain! I didn’t know what a Westie dog was until I googled it, and now I can see that they really are quite adorable haha - I can relate to your desire!
That really is quite the number of operations you have been through. I’m glad that your new medication has led to improvement in pain management. I have also heard a lot about the benefits of mindfulness from a lot of people (mostly for stress and anxiety), so I’m happy to hear that it has helped you deal with pain as well!
Our many helpful members around here are always eager to share the strategies and treatments that have helped them out - so it sounds like you already fit right in. Feel free, however, to also start getting involved in our discussions and start your own topics. You can always check out the “How To Use This Site” tab up top for some useful beginner tips.
Best wishes - and feel free to send me a message if you have any questions!
