  • Ah I am so sorry to hear that you are in such a bad way.

    Try to rest if you can and take painkillers if possible until you know more (remember it's important to take painkillers regularly in order for them to build up in your system to have some effect, don't wait until you are in lots of pain to take them...this is how I manage my pain...I'm not pain free but am able to reduce the level of pain I am in if I take painkillers every 4-6 hours depending on the strength)...it's difficult but try not to stress yourself out too much. Explain everything to your Consultant on Tuesday and seek advise from him/her.

    Wishing you all the best...stay strong and stay positive and keep us updated on how your appointment goes. Remember...you are not alone x

  • Thanks been and got some better painkillers i think.GP thinks my bladder is attached to the front of my stomach and to my womb at other side.Roll on tomorrow.
