UPDATE: Well, it seems my suspicions were right, there is nothing wrong with my back to be giving me the pain!! Surprise, surprise, another fact I feel like shoving up the Registrars nose who told me I couldn't have Endo!! (Diagnostic lap showed Endo on both ovaries) and my back pain was an issue for Orthopaedics!
Saw a lovely lady, a Clinical Specialist Nurse of the Pain Management Team at my local Hospital. She spent over an hour with me and I felt really listened to and my pain understood. She went through my Lumbar Spine X-ray thoroughly with me, very interesting, where everything was fine apart from very early signs of Scoliosis, nothing at all to worry about but an early sign to start taking care of my back for later on in life. She has told me to go back to Gynae with this info - it was them that sent me.
It does seem that I have an issue purely due to the fact that I have been immobile for so long, this will be fine with a little physio and maybe swimming but she said I am in no fit state at the moment to contemplate that. I need to get my main pain diagnosed and sorted.
She has given me Gabapentin (on top of my cocktail of meds including morphine) to slowly build up the dose over 3 days then, after 5 days of full dose, give her a ring and tell her how many times I still needed morphine and my pain levels each day. She can then see if it is working and adjust dose accordingly.
Sooooo, more waiting. Have my post op appt. on the 18th and seems there will be much to talk about and discuss (what are my options with Endo on both ovaries, and WHAT IS wrong with my back). Have been told that I will not see a Registrar but Mr. Warren himself (!) who I wrote to after my distressing first appointment. Seems it was worth it.
Wishing you lovely ladies a warm, comfortable and pain free week as possible . xxx
