Just thought I'd write this post to say that my gp has put me on gabapentin and mst (30mg) in combination with my oramorph for breakthrough pain. (Let me just add - my tolerance is very high to pain relief)
And I must say touch wood the pain has been much more bearable! I tried mst and gabapentin on their own before but they weren't as effective, but they seem to work better together. My gp says my pain is to complex for him to manage and I should stress this to my pain nurse when I have my appointment next week. I think he got a cheek! Thats his job! And it gets worse.. He said to me would you say your pain is as bad as a cancer patient?! Because I don't think so!
I said don't underestimate my pain and the problems I go through on a daily basis! And i said I don't know if my pain is as bad as cancer because I don't have cancer !!! I was tamping!!!
Anyway I've had my rant lol
Love louise xxx
