I had a car accident coming up on 19 years ago. I have had thirty surgeries and a long list of complications. My current diagnosis includes severe renal failure, partially blocked kidney, neuropathic pain in my xylphoid area of my chest, chronic pain in my lower back left leg and hip, fibre myalgia, and depression. I also have had my bladder removed and have an illeo conduit. Out of this list, the neuropathic pain is the worst. I am currently taking lidocaine infusions and injections of lidocaine and steroids directly into the xlphiod area where the pain is. I have a port a cath in and go for weekly morphine and zophran treatments along with a list of medication. It is a full time job being sick. You are constantly going from appointment to appointment and I find I am physically, mentally and emotionally drained. I see my family doctor weekly, along with a Urologist, Nephologist, Phycologist and have regular Reflexology Therapy. Every time the phone rings, I think, What next!
