blizmo...I'd like to welcome you to the board. I am glad to see that you have found us, and you feel comfortable posting here with us! I'd suggest you starting your own post, as you are likely to get more replies. Sometimes when people have already read a post, they won't go into it anymore.
I am glad you are getting yourself looked at, and trying to find out the cause of what's going on. A few things I would like to say...Stress can be a factor in making you feel like this. I seriously do not think stress is the only factor in your pain, as your pain seems severe. I am just saying, if you have a lot of stress in your life, of course, try to cut that down. Also, worrying about
your problem will make things feel worse. Although, I do know, it is hard not to worry.
I am so sorry your partner had such a bad experience with the operation. I can understand you being skeptikal because of that. Anyone would be. I would though like to say that there are many people who have had the surgery, and it has been a success. Everyone will take differently to it.
Please let us know how your upcoming tests go, and we will go from there. Stick with us, and when you feel comfortable enough, do start a post of your own so you will get more replies!
I am happy to have you with us!
Please look back at old posts too, as they will answer many questions you might have!
