Chronic Pain From Liver Transplant
broice1947 posted:
Hi all,

It's me. I am deeply into withdrawal and am in incredible pain. I am not trying to say my pain is worse than yours but I have to see Dr. 'Mengele' so that he can stick me with more needles. Last week I got 5 in my spine and 5 in m y ribs and I am still in pain. He is a neurologist. He did give me 120 mgs per day, but I was on 350mgs, and I got cut down really fast!
Finally I found an anaestheologist (whatever) who will see me on April 29th, but between now and then I have to go on this cruise and I really don't want to go feeling this way,
I am alone with my pain always. It doesn't stop for a second to take a breath. It is beautiful outside today and I'm stuck alone with my pain and withdrawal.
I'm sorry complaining like this to all of you good people. But nobody around me understands.
