Hi all, I'm new on here and just wanted to Introduce myself. I'm a young 65 year old male, I'm married and have two boys who have both flown the nest. After a serious spinal accident at work I've been suffering with Chronic back pain, leg pain and Depression now for the past 31 years. On my long journey over the years I've lost count of all the different types of treatments and spinal injections I've had, plus all the different types of medication I take, like Fentanyl, Oramorph, Gabapentin, Amitriptyline, Celecoxib, Venlafaxine, Trazodone and a few others for different things. Even with all these treatments and medication I take I'm now at a point where my chronic pain is so bad (10++) I don't know what else my consultant can do for me, which has not helped my depression.
That's me, there's a lot more but I'd be writing for hours.
