Thanks I know all of you know what its like but no one in my life or around me really truly understands what I'm going through I have pain all day everyday I think people are sick of me complaining about my pain I can't help it but I think your right I need some relief and I should take them so I can function until I know what's happening and what I can do to reduce my pain. No I haven't heard from the specialist I'm getting really frustrated and annoyed so this week I'm off to my docs to get him to ring the specialist and get things on the way.

Hi
Totally agree with Christine, if you get relief from the meds, take them. Its better to have relief than becoming desparate and suffering physically as well as mentally. Yes as Christine said we have or are suffering pain in some form and I know what you mean about feeling like you are always complaining about the pain and no one understands. This is why this forum is great as others have suffered or are still suffering and can really understand what you are on about.

I know now even though I have done so well after surgery I still get back post op pains that are really hard to descibe and I am sure only poeple on this forum can understand the feeling of having rods in your back. Hang in, post on the forum any time, people here will understand....

Thank you for your reply Rosie I think you are right I'm just getting a lot different advice from people but most of the people I talk to don't know what I'm going through that's why I joined this from and I've got a lot of help and advice I will be going back to my doctor probably on Wednesday so he can ring the specialist because I'm still in the dark about how bad my scoliosis and khyposis is I will be taking medication tomorrow morning and then on after till I don't need it anymore.

Hi Rosie I haven't taken any of my pain meds as of yet. I have taken them before and they have worked wonders. I'm holding off from taking them atm as I don't like the side effects.

I find that today is a good day for me as my pain isn't as extreme as it normally is I have pain in my lower upper back hips and thighs I'm probably going to see my doc tomorrow so he can ring the specialist I'm anxiously waiting to see what they say.
