Hi I have been reading The emails that come through each day and my heart goes out to everyone's suffering. I have been so low that I couldn't even write but now I have an op this Monday and I am so scared a at having more surgery. I am seeing Mr Kent at royal Surrey and I get the impression that although another op will cause some adhesions that surgery has really moved on to minimise them and that it is definitely worth removing any existing adhesions. I am on gabapentin and amitryptaline for the nerve pain but it is still there. Has anyone had relief from the nerve pain post surgery and been able to come off these drugs? Also can Anyone share their surgery experience under Mr Kent, obviously Positive feedback as. I know of the rules on this site. I am scared that post surgery they are going to kick me out of hospital too early to vacate my bed as I get very sick with generals despite years of anti emetics and because of my constant joint pain it takes a while to get the pain under control. How can I tell the docs and nurses of this without soundin I'm being difficult and don't want to be discharged too quickly.
