Hi All,
Well many months later and I am still dealing with my liver damage. I have stopped nearly all my break through pain killers relying on distraction, heat, cold, physio and TENS to deal with my pain level. My worry at the moment is that it is holiday time which means a 1400km trip and my body and travel are not a good mix. Did a 6 hour trip over 2 days a couple of days and that resulted in being flat out in bed for 2 days.
Does anyone have ideas how to make a very long car trip less painful with out medication....
I had hoped to have a bit more improvement in my liver ready for the trip but that isn't the case, saw the doc yesterday and the best he could give me was an odd tablet here or there. Today I feel as my pain is pressing me down, the weight to much to deal with today. Why does it always seem that it gets harder and harder that nothing you do, all the work you put in to fight this is for nothing.
Just can't find the smile today

There is always a SMILE
in your day,
you just need to find it!

Sorry Wendles, I’ve no uplifting words that would help .. I love travelling by car towing our caravan but I feel the pain after an hour of sitting and have to stop to relieve the sciatica .. my only alternative is to stop caravanning and I don’t intend to let that happen, so slow and steady gets us there.

Try and find that smile it can be terribly hard and I totally understand.

Not ok tonight. Too many thoughts racing through my mind about my surgery. Can someone please tell me that this freaking out is normal when you are 2 days out from a double fusion surgery? :( :unsure: :ohmy: :unsure: :(

It might be normal for some, not me ... I’ve never freaked out or had second thoughts about surgery,

Positive thoughts and chill out to your favourite music. I wish you well.
