Currently, I’m taking 60 ML of Methadone but, it does not help as I expected. My t pain is chronic and worst of all I’m 56 and when doing love is very painful. I’m living the third age, and I will like to enjoy my wife’s love and many other things. Added to these illnesses I have also the Chron’s disease; the entire Colon was removed from my body. It’s painful and depressed to live always in pain. What medication would be appropriate for me; according to your experiences?
I had tried methadone at one time, however besides being allergic to it, it never helped with the pain. Please discuss this issue with the doctor who is giving you the methadone, you're on a very high dose, and if this is not working they need to change it now! Crohn's disease is also very painful, and only further adds to depression. Address all these concerns, write them down before you go for your appointment so you don't forget what issues you need to discuss, it really helps, doctor appointments are stressful as it is. OK... Hope this helps.
I'm not a doctor, but if is interring with your love life with your wife, I would let him also know that, they have a plethora of medications to choose from and I'm hoping your doctor is compassionate enough to understand your feeling on this subject. I wish you the best. God Bless and Good Luck to You!
