Hi, I am a 36yr old male and I suffer from Chronic Pancreatitis and severe diabetes. I have been suffering with this condition for the past 8 years.
I have been on strong class A Pain killers for the past four years, this has now been increased to include 300mg zomorph daily, gabapentin, tramadol, oramorph, cocodamol, amitriptyline, and many various other drugs.
In July last year I had a pancreatojejunostomy, after a 9 hour operation and months of recovery I have been told that this operation hasn't worked and there is no more they can do other that pump me full of more pain killer's to keep on top of the pain,
I am now starting to have some severe side effects due to the level of drugs I am on including seizures, hallucinations, problems passing urine, sever shaking and drowsiness to the point that I just fall asleep almost like narcolepsy.
I'm now at a loss at to what to do? I have 2 young children and this is now effecting my and my families quality of life, can anyone help???
