Welcome...so sorry for your pain! We are all here to care and send lots of loving support and understanding....just wanted to say hi!
Welcome to the "Nut-House" Tabithacat...Just kidding. We are all pretty stable when we take our meds on time.
I am 41, and have been having CP issues for over 20 years!!! I feel like I'm 90 most of the time because I can't do anything like I used to. Of course, like you, I am grateful that I can do anything at all..Some people are in wheelchairs or have to use walkers or canes.
Anyway, you came to the right place. We can offer our wisdom and sometimes some great advice. But we are NOT Doctors...
Here's to having a great day!!!!
We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...
Post Lamenectomy Syndrome
120 mg. Methadone daily
60 mg. Oxycodone daily
Lyrica as needed
Thanks all for your replies. I must admit I do feel humbled by some of your stories and what you have to go to and think I should just 'shut up'!! I do think the site is great and it is good to vent because I think my partner and friends are sick to death of me going on about it - I have one friend who still can't understand the fact that my back problem causes so much trouble with my legs!
And PALady - I think I have just found a PT who is really good and hopefully will help. I havn't dared go near one for over a year becuase I am convinced the first one I saw made things way worse. This one treats your whole body with a mixture of PT/reflexology/eastern medicines etc. I now do a lot of gentle pilates - the whole problem probably starting from weakness due to several abdominal surgeries over the years. Again my thanks.....
