In agony please help me get a bit of release

Posted , 5 users are following.

I got diagnosed with an ovarian cyst in about October last year, I had a laproscopy in November and got told I also had Endometriosis and I will soon feel better after being in pan for about three months, about a week later I went back to the doctor and told them I was still in agony, he told me it was just my wounds healing, so I left it for about two weeks after that i was in agony and went back to be told I need to wait for another Month. So back hone I went. Now to be honest this was getting ridiculous back then but now it is April and I have tried Danazol/Imlanol and pain killers, and now I just want to be out of pain i keep going back to the doctors and they keep just palming me off so now I am finding it hard to live with the pain so if any one out there would be able to help me I would be very great full.

    You should have recovered months ago,, your GP should refer you back to the Gynecologist / Hospital because unless they've got x-ray vision they haven't got a clue what's going on rolleyes How would you describe the pain? If the pain is really (or becomes) atrocious then the best place for you is A&E,, I mean at least they'd x-ray the area and do blood tests as well as (hopefully) fixing you up with some decent pain relief before packing you off home sad

    I have been to the doctors as well as A&E a lot of times since my surgery, I am on very strong pain killers but they do not help with the pain I am also on Danazol as well as implanol, at the moment the only way I can see out of this pain is to kill myself at least it would all be over then.

    It feels like someone is stabbing me and what ever they are using to stab is is being dragged with it.

    It is alwful even on pain killers it is still killing me I just want it to end now.

    Assuming no organic abnormality has been found during your multiple Doctor / A&E visits then it must be nerve damage causing Neuropathic Pain, your only hope is a medicine along the lines of Amitriptyline rolleyes What 'very strong pain killers' have you been given? smile

    I am not sure what they are called but it is the same strength as tramadol, they would have put me on tramadol but because I am allergic to one of the ingredients in it.

    If this goes on for much longer than you must ask (beg?) your GP / Consultant to refer you to the Pain Management clinic because there really is no need for you to be left suffering like this sad In the meantime you must ask them to send you for a CT or MRI scan to get a more detailed look at what is going on in there and causing your condition,, frankly I'm not convinced they've looked or tried hard enough to resolve your issues, otherwise (based on my experience) they'll keep you fobbed off for years rolleyes

    I have tried so many times, I have begged them to sort me out be it referring me to someone else or to give me some decent pain killers at the moment the only thing that is keeping me going is my amazing boyfriend. It is just unbearable.

    I dunno how they sleep at night sad I think part of the problem is that when patients who've had operations end up essentially worse the Doctors think you are blaming them when in reality you (we) can accept that sh*t happens sometimes but we'd just appreciate being enabled to carry on living some semblance of a normal life sad

    I completely agree they are being so unfair, I have even be told by one of my doctors who I had a three minute appointment with that there was nothing wrong with me, how does she know that when she has not even examined me, the annoying thing is she says there is nothing wrong with me but why is she giving me strong pain killers after she has said that?

    I had the same thing, I had an operation and ended up worse, I even got to see the pain management specialist who told me that 1) he can't give me anything because I'd probably overdose on it,, 2) (anyway) nothing causes pain like this and he's referring to a Psychiatrist :O Now it turns out that actually I'd been suffering from Angina and I've got a blood clot in my Heart and multiple clots in my Aorta causing chronic Bowel / Intestinal Ischaemia,, so nope it doesn't instill me with confidence in Doctors even so called specialists at all rolleyes

    All I'd advice you to do is go to see your GP every week and tell them whether you are or are not getting better an if so what are they going to do about it rolleyes Be honest with them, tell them that you think you are being treated sub standardly and appallingly rolleyes

    Ridiculous as it sounds these are the only people who can help you sad

    To be honest I ended up calling my GPs a disgrace and moved to another practice and since things have been a lot better,, these new lot even insist I go and see them,, it's quite unnerving :O I was like,, huh!? :D

    What exact amounts of pain relief do you take in a day? You know you can take Ibuprofen, Paracetamol and Codeine (I presume) all together? Tramadol is available in liquid form smile Have you considered that your condition is getting you down and that an Antidepressant might help (both with the pain and to perk you up), you don't have to be like a totally depressed wreck, even if only for a couple of months? smile

    I have changed my doctors all ready and even the new ones don't seem to care that much, I am on OxyNorm 5mg six times a day, I am also on zoladex, danazol, implanol, and I am also on antidepressants.
