So Much Pain

I woke up with a horrible pain in my back and leg. My foot has also been numb all day. Tomorrow is six months post op. I guess the Neurontin was helping that pain although it was causing swelling and other pain. I'm taking Amitriptyline but it is not doing the job. I'll see what the dr. says. I just thought the pain would be gone by now. I don't regret the surgery either. Had to be done. I can't imagine how much worse it would be without surgery.

Re: So Much Pain

Hessie - I am so sorry. I have been having a terrible couple of days as well. It is so frustrating, isn't it? My pain is nothing compared to have had it for so long. Has the swelling gone down completely?

I will be lifting you up in prayer.

Re: So Much Pain

Thanks. It is very frustrating. I'm just so sick of being in pain everyday. I've had chronic pain for years for one thing or another. I just thought it would get better everyday and not worse. I'm just whining.........

Hi hessie

Whine away!!
We are always here to listen.
I have whined enough myself on here.

Maybe its a case of the pain will get worse before it gets better.
Which ever i hope the doctor has sorted you out and you are feeling abit of pain relief.
