Hi, my name is Mactheknife1!
Hi new on this but here goes. Following appendix being removed when I was a teenager got adhesions causing me blockages to the bowel 12yrs later then 7yrs and again 5yrs the last one being 7/12/2001 this time they could not get inside to divide them they had become to dense they perforated my bowel in 5 places before stopping the operation leaving me with an open wound that took ages to heal. They then told me they could no longer help and put me on pain management over the years I have tried pethadine, mst, beupronorphine, fentynel and now on Tramadol paracetamol plus about 5 other drugs for pain relief. I just no idea where to turn next. Sorry this is lengthy but might as well tell all from day1. They said to make the most of my time as they did'nt think I would see beyond 12months, stubborn sod I have lasted 17yrs still going, not good though being in constant pain.
