Hi again......I had no choice but to have spinal fusion my back was broken ...they told me they took out little bits of bone.It was the worst thing i have ever had in my whole life so much pain sos so horrid...i would say to anyone unless it is your life ...dont get it done..
I worked very hard in Hotels for over 30 years.
Bending lifting and lots of hours on my feet. Then i fell a few times being in a rush and i am a little woman with small bones.
Not so little now as i cannot move to much so th weight makes it worse ...i have been told i need a new ankle....so that had added not so much to my pain but to not being able to walk around much I am not getting it done......my specialist told me that there is not good results ...i am getting over getting my knee done no more !!.I am done...
Lying down is the only way out of it...being nerve pain the pressure on my bottom when sitting is so bad and never stops.....
I have been to pain management went to the best in Brisbane for over 4 years then that was it he said no more he could not help me.......i tried others but i was put in the to hard basket.....i think that is where my children have put me......my husband is wonderful but he is only human and it gets to hard for him as well....as he does all housework and all standing jobs. But i have to cook he cannot do that..lol
He needs a break from me .I need a break for me.......Sitting down here writing this is painful without help from drugs of some sort....but the doctor told me i am an addict but tell me what else can i do..............................................give up.....no that is not in me to do that......Peter a letter to my children would be a great idea. Yes Ronnie we have empathy with each other we understand as no one else does......my friends think they do but they dont but at least they try my children do not !!!1

Hey Dolly,

If you go to general discussions and go to the fifth pin down you’ll see a letter for those who need to show family how we handle chronic pain and what we have to put up with ,it’s about three pages but it definitely opens eyes I found this in the dark dungeons on Chronic Pain Australia

as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse

Hi everybody, this is Astroboy here - so hello to you all, I came across this site some time ago and was impressed with what I read, hopefully I can find some answers hopefully to ease the pain. I'm 63y.o. had a stroke at 43 in '98, diagnosed with cancer (cranium), 2003, had on average 2 ops a year to try to get the bugger (no luck), diagnosed with cancer again 2010, cancer in the neck, cancer in top lobe right lung, cancerous polyps x 3 colon, cancer in the spine at base of skull.
Had ops for the neck, lung and colon, the others are still there waiting, they still haven't found primary cancer yet. All of the above have contributed to the pain that I've never had, T'ville pain clinic looked after me for most of that time, but I'm still looking for that relief.
That's enough about me, hope to have a yarn sometime
Regards,Astroboy

Hi Astroboy,

I love the nom de plume it was a great cartoon ah the good old days , I have moved your” saying hello “to “introduce yourself here” we try to keep the subjects down as the more you have the harder it is to keep an eye on things so I’ll apologise in advance if it upsets you.
Well you’ve got a full house mate but you sound like your beating the crap out of the bastards keep on hitting them for six I can’t give you any advise as you seem like you’ve got the people in Tvl on your side.
Keep on fighting !
Pain medication is something we can’t advise on you doctor or specialist would have a great idea or you could ask to your local pharmacist.
