I am so sorry you are going through this! I have to have twice the morphine when I am in the hospital as the normal person. I just can not imagine the pain you are going through and with little ones running around......you are a trooper if I say so myself! I could not do what you do and I am amazed. i don't think my meds would help you but here is what I do: I take a muscle relaxer every night and 3 tramadol. I also take two lyrica around 6pm and in the mornings when the pain is really bad. I have darvocet for the really bad day but it makes me so sick that I refuse to take it and will have to get something else for the really bad days. I really hope you are able to get some relief soon!!!!
I have to ask you, how are you sleeping at night????? I know that when I do not get sleep my pain is out of control and it is a horrible cycle that I start. I actually take sleeping pills at night just to make sure I get a decent nights sleep. It is very important for us to get our sleep
Keep us posted on what you and the doctors decide and please keep eventing to us when it is tough for you! That is what we are here for. We will be here through the good times and the bad times......that is what this family is for!
I am sending you thoughts of a pain free night and lots of gentle hugs, hang in there and try to get some sleep
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
