Back and neck pain from extensive surgery

My spouse has had 4 surgeries on his neck (which has now fused) and had a surgery on his lower back to cut off the top of the vertebrae (it was cutting off the spinal cord. He is now in excruciating pain constantly and his drs. say his lower back is fusing. It is a matter each day of how bad the pain is. He also has Osteoarthritis, on medication for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, not to mention side effects from the medication he takes for the inflamation and pain (he takes it only when he can't stand it) Is there any Homeopathy that can help him now?
He is 59 yrs old, abt 185 lbs, depressed, sometimes wants to give up on life, always worries, still gives much of himself to others, a couch potato, not active, needs approval of others, etc.

Any help would be appreciated, I would like to help him feel a bit better.

Please give him bryonia 30c four times a day at a gap of 3 hours for 3 days and report back.
please follow homeo restrictions.

Ok, he has taken his dose, I asked him if he has felt any difference. He said he wakes up feeling a bit better, but as the day goes on he goes back to feeling worse. It seems to me he has slept a bit better at night, he said he hasn't really noticed. Will this take a bit longer to notice a difference for him? He did mention that he was having some crazy nightmares, not sure it is since he has taken byronia. He is a hard person to read.

Well, I finally got him to take this for the two days. He finally said he thought he was feeling a bit better, although he still has to take a pain pill at night after a long work day. I have noticed when he does get to sleep at night, he seems to have a more restful sleep. Does he need to take these any more or at intervals to keep him feeling a bit better?

Thank you very much for your advice and help. It is much appreciated!

Bryonia and Staphysagria are the prime remedies in homeopathy for neuralgia. Both the remedies are helpful in pains that are worse after movements and exertion. So you may try any one remedy at a time at intervals depending on his symptoms. You may also try these remedies in 200c potency.

Quick answer again! Ok, I will. So, if I use one of these remedies, I use the same dosage you gave me for each one, correct?

Thanx again!

That is Correct.

You may also give him 2 tablets each of the following tissue salts 4 times a day at a gap of 4 hours.
magnesium phos 6x
calcarea phos 6x

Please don't give tissue salts on the day when you give him any homeopathic remedy. Tissue salts can be continued for a long period of time and it seems that they may help him.
