Hi everyone, I have been reading one of the postings about the Morphine pump that you have at the minute. I have been on MST 60 mg tabs and on Oramorph now for quite a few years, I have very bad adhesions in my abdomen and for 14yrs I was told to learn to live with the pain I have.
Surgeon after surgeon said that they would not touch me, until December 2013 after so many admissions into hospital a surgeon said he would try and help me, so I went through surgery in Jan 2014 that didn't help much so he did another operation in June 2014, while waiting to be discharged after my surgery I developed a bad leaking from my wound, they put me a bag on to the wound to catch whatever came out of wound.
For 4 months I had the wound care nurses everyday to change my bag, in the end I got a bad infection and had to go back into surgery to have it cleaned out, but I was still leaking and eventually I had to go back to surgery to have the wound cleaned out again and was left with an open wound for another month. Even though I have gone through all this I am still in agony, im sure my gp thinks its amusing that I have been in and out of hospital as do the staff in the hospital who are very sarcastic, they think they are being funny but I am not amused.
I think that the effects of the mst and oramorph are not working too well and im having to take more oramorph to try to ease the pain, Im so sorry to be babbling on like this but this is the 1st time I have had to talk to people. By the way I had epidurals during surgery as well as being put out but was then informed that the epiduals did not work. I ended up in ICU for 4days after my op in june , now I don't think there is anything else left that I can do to stop the pain, thanks for reading this.
