  • So grateful for your replys..I had nerve damage post surgery..leaving me with loss of sensation in left foot and parts of my leg/buttock.....this is nuropathic pain and is constant. I have custum made shoes and insoles. Today I found out that there is up to a yearas waiting list!..I am in these shoes 24/7 for over buy would cost 685 euro!! do not have the money. I might have a low lying infection...will retake test and see then. I am lucky in one sense as I have no that makes it easier..but of course there are times when I wish I had...such is life. Thanks again to you both....

  • Completely understand you hunny. Two spinal surgeries, the 2nd through my stomach as I had so much scar tissue in my back. Never got any physio. Was on so much morphine plus wearing morphine patches, I couldn't even function. Finally found a pain consultant who would listen and he helped me wean myself off. Still take MST and 120ml of Oramorph a day. Plus 200mg Gabapentin, mirtazapine, diazepam, naproxen. Worst (for very vain me) is that within 6 weeks of surgery I had swollen to double my size. I can't eat and spend my life vomiting. The sickness is so bad I'm having a surgery to try and stop it. But why am I so swollen? Everyone thinks I'm fat. No one believes I don't eat, except my gastroenterologist. My GP wants me to have a gastric band! I thought my husband would explode with rage as he spends his life trying to get me to eat. Any ideas!
