By | December 10, 2022 | 0 Comments

New England Journal opioid recommendations: “Short-term benefits are small…” These people reached middle age, but never had a sports injury, car crash, broken bone, or surgery; and never treated patients who had these. “Limited evidence of long-term benefits.” They surely never treated cancer patients.
