I unfortunately know what if feels like to be at the end of your rope...

Every day I feel like I just can't do it any longer, I can't deal with the pain any longer, but I've always pulled through, stuck it out, no matter how much pain I was in.  Today, after a failed attempt at help to my surgeon, I finally know what it feels like to be done.  If he can't help me then who can?  I can not continue down this same road, can not continue to be in this much pain with no relief.

What is going on mama? What is causing you so much pain? I am so sorry the surgeon didn't help you!

Me too! So, what's going on? What did you see a surgeon for?

May I ask why you are in so much pain? I've just begun dealing with chronic pain. For me pain meds are almost all out the question. I'm allergic to NSAIDs and what I am not allergic to interferes with my blood pressure meds. Ironically when my pain levels are too high, my bp skyrockets too. It's been extremely frustrating to say the least.

Thank you.  I feel like I'm calling more attention than I should (I don't like attention hence the posting anon and deleting posts...lol), but thanks for replying.  I've  had ongoing pain for a few years due to spine issues and now muscle issues related to the spine issues.  I feel like the surgeon and his team thinks I'm just pill seeking when I'm not, I would just like some sort of relief.  It really sucks!

Is the surgeon you are seeing a specialist? I would honestly see about finding another surgeon to speak to and let them know you need help. Don't stop pushing until someone listens. Good luck and I truly hope someone soon listens to you and gives you the help you need to feel better!

OP, my Mom dealt with back pain for over ten years, the dr's just wanted to keep her on pain meds, she HATED that.  She found a private hospital (not sure on the details), and they preformed back surgery.  She is OK now.  I am so sorry you are dealing with this, I hope you can find relief soon, especially without meds, that's no way to live.  =(

I've had surgery, fixed one thing, but not everything.  Going to PT, thinking I may ask her and my GP for help since my surgeon isn't doing anything.  I don't think he's even seeing my emails or hearing about my calls. When I first saw him he was new to the hospital (not a new Dr), but now a couple months later he's got new patients and doesn't have time for everyone (my suspicion...I could be wrong). I have to go to bed (4am comes really early!), so if I don't respond to future replies that why.  But I really do appreciate you all who have so far.  I try not to get down, but after a few years of pain and now seemingly no one who wants to help, it's hard to not get depressed.
