Hi everyone, I haven't been on here for an awful long time as unfortunately after just over 4 years, I'm someone else who's almost come to the end of the line, so I've been in hospital and hospice a few times and find it harder now to get involved in things.
I'm now at home with a pump syringe which gives out morphine and anti-sickness drugs 24/7 and is excellent at keeping pain and nausea at bay. However, in the evening and at night I'm having such a problem with reflux pain. I have been taking a Zoton tablet for this for many years and now have one in the evening as well as the morning but this doesn't seem to be making much of a difference. I've tried all the usual, peppermint, sipping warm water,etc and am hoping someone can suggest something different. I have Oromorph (liquid morphine) which I can top myself up with every hour if I need it but I don't want to be continually doing this. I usually eventually fall alseep around 2ish and when I awake a few hours later everything has settled down again. I'm eating very little, and very, very slowly and mainly now have the Ensure Plus drinks as my meals with little bits of what I fancy sort of fitted around them. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Love Cathy x
