    Liver Transplant patient
    broice1947 posted:
    I am a liver transplant patient, whose liver is too big for my body and mistakes were made during surgery which left me in chronic pain. Are there any doctors out there who understand internal pain. Because, I have been stuck in my back a bunch of times because a doctor thought it was muscular/skeletal. N0o it is internal. I was on a very large dose of methadone, all I wanted was to come down 100 mgs. I know I could handle my pain with that much less methadone. Instead
    I was sent from one doctor to another who only wanted to either detox me (what do I do for pain) or stick me in my back. Please God let there be doctors out there who are non judgemental and understand pain.

    Yes,it is me Joyce. Thank you so much for your prayers but I don't think God is ;listening. II hate the way I have been feeling. The pain is intolerable. My liver feels like it is falling out of my body. I still wonder why I was the lucky one, The one who lived thru everything. I have never been thru withdrawal in my life, so God thru me a curve bal. I am now experiencing withdrawal. It is hard to type;

    I wish I could find a real doctor.
