I was in good health prior to collapsing with the pain and was more than happy that I did not have to have the open surgery. I thought that I would be back to myself within a week or two. This could not be farther from the truth. The reality is I have been so ill since the surgery, I have not had a pain free day since the op. I have lost a lot of weight and I cannot tolerate a lot of things because they either give me more pain or make me feel nauseous. I have also found that I am hypersensitive to smells.
I have constant pain at the bottom of my right rib cage area which goes through to my back and then goes up under my shoulder blade. I have been given various pain relief management remedies which can either make me unable to function or not worth the prescription charge. At the moment I feel totally miserable cant even laugh without it hurting me. The worst thing being no-one seems to have any answers as to when I am going to get better. I am not some sort of attention seeker I just want my life back! I would like to have answers to why this pain is there because it is dragging me down. I have now been referred back to the consultant that operated, but I can’t see what good that is going to do.
