Having just been to the consultant, he tells me that as my pelvis is 'gummed' surgery would be too hazardous. I am currently taking targinact, gabapentin, amitryptiline, and paracetamol to control the pain and it is not working anymore. My right leg and lower back pain making walking near impossible at times, and the general pain is debilitating. This is not living, it is existing. Western medicine seems to have written me off so I think I will look at other options. Has anyone tried other methods with any success?? Help please ladies. I've really just had enough! As I'm sure we all have.
