    I'm sorry to hear that you're in so much pain, and that this is causing you to feel so low. Have you spoken about this with your doctor, or asked for a referral to a pain clinic?

    Hi and welcome @buzzy glad you have joined and I am sorry you are in such pain 

    Have you spoke to your gp about referral to pain management clinic or maybe your consultant can get involved to instruct your gp of meds you require 

    Hope you get sorted
