helo everyone, has anyone here, been on gaberpentine for pain.When I came out of hospital 3 years ago I was put on gaberpentine to help with nerve pain after a bullectmy. iv had no problems but last few weeks doc trying to wheen me off them graduly, anyone got any thoughts on this
breath easy my friends
Ya those freak accidents can sure change things real fast. It is good to hear the love between you and your wife kept you together thru it all. That can be a hard road to walk when illness comes. Sounds like you have a good support system with you. I am basily here alone. So gets somewhat scary if I can't walk, drive, or even open a jelly lid. Right now I have a 83 yr old boarder who helps. But he is fading fast and his daughter may have to make other arrangements for him in the near future. I guess stay strong is all we can do
I have been on since my first dog passed in 2008 for shingles and told to keep on it for nerve pain as I have bulging discs in my spin I do get nerve block at the hospital for this but this drug just keeps it managable
helo getig, never worry about being nosey, im glad to share my story and listen to others, my wife and I married for 49 years , we both have very strong faith but we not over the top with it just something wev always had,I use a chair and have a mobility scooter, I had to stop driving few years back which was big deal for me,somedays im ok but others its bad, my wife is very good but she dosnt spoil me lol.as you know its very frustrateing mind says yep I can do that but body dosnt agree, I had an accident at work iwas working for a removel company me and another chap carrying a heavy Bendix washing machine he lost his grip and droped it leaving me with sudden weight it broke my back, a one in a million accident, but that's life in genral isn't it? I thank the lord for the life I have 4 grown up kids and 10 grandchildren what can beat that lol
I am at the point where it makes me mad. I want to do something and just cannot, and the pain can bring tears to your eyes. I am determined to ride my mower and mulch leaves this fall. May take half a bottle of advil to do it and wear a mask of some sort...but that is a chore I have always loved doing. I may not be able to stand up racing down the hill, but can still pretend I am a Nascar driver out there. LOL
I sure wish you all the best..cannot even imagine the pain you must be in. Will pray for healing. Do you wear a brace. Can you sit or stand at all? Sorry Nosey here. But your story is a learning tool.
getting thanks for your reply, I hope you soon get your back sorted out, anyone who has suffered with spine problems will know how tough it is, its a bit more than ow my back is hurting, it is a real illness and often underestimated.
