I started having pain problems after an operation to the main vein in my right leg, I was warned that there was a risk of possible nerve damage as they would have to cut so far into my leg. I stated having pain straight after and was put on severadol twice a day 20mg to help. I had to go back in a few days later and the gave me MST slow release morphine as well. I was later sent to the pain clinic and started a course of acupuncture as well as switching to Oxycontin, Oxynorm and taking Pregabalin. After side effect and taking medication for these that put me up to 10 different medications. I was then given pain injections which for the first few started to help but by the third injection a year later didn't seem to help. The pain clinic tried another injection to see if this would help but to little effect. By this time I had go off from work sick after my boss advised me he thought I wasn't fit enough this was 8 months ago, I had a nerve block injection 6 months ago and was put back on to MST and severadol. I'm at the QMC in Nottingham for my second Nerve block injection today. The staff there are always great, happy and helpful. My wife is always asking what else can be done so I have posted this question up on the board. So all suggestions taken into account as who wants this kind on misery everyday......
