I have been fighting this for 27 years now. I had a kidney removed 6 months before. The second abdominal surgery I came out in great pain with a pulling on my right side. Where the surgery was. I am in constant pain the muscles move constantly. My family has abandoned me. My daughter will not help and my X is taking me to court because he is now retireing and wants the support lowered,he will probibly get it. I have no where to go. I can't be alone and take care of myself properly, I do have a fried who is a great help and will go anywhere with me. If you can give me support or any advice, I very much appreciate it. Thank you Denise
hello denise, i am new to this site. I have scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, and sciatic nerve pain. I too lost my left kidney a couple of years ago. Everything on my left side is "messed up". I have extreme low and middle back pain. And now my fingers and hands are starting to go numb, esp. in the mornings. They wake me up hurting. I figured it is from my severe scoliosis. I needed to have the surgery when i was 16, but my mother was scared to do it, now i must pay the price and suffer. I am currently on Neurontin 800mg x 3 a day. They have helped my sciatic nerve pain like no other medicine!!! I lost my insurance at the beginning of this year, so now i have to go to a clinic for my pain medicine. I have been on morphine sulfate 30 mg 5 x a day for a year now. It does help, but i need an increase in my dose since I have built up a tolerance to it. Also morphine is cheap to get at pharmacy. Have you tried any muscle relaxers? I am on Flexeril 10 mg.x 3 a day. I am waiting on disability to be approved since I can only stand for a very short time. Also can't walk , but with a cane. I am 47 years old, but feel at least 65. Write back and good luck to you I will keep you in my prayers!!! jane in ky.
