Hi

I have been left with nerve damage following repeated surgeries to my anal region, and had my colon removed. My back pain is in my lower back and agony. Ive tried diff pain killers like tramadol, pethidine but most make me sleepy, and now im on diclafenac which is not touching the pain at all as its mainly used as anti inflammatory. Any one have an tips of how to relieve the pain or medicines that help?? Thanks

ThanksMy father had this part removed as part of a bowel cancer operation 18 months ago, but in the last six months he started to get real pain that would take his breath away - for no apparent reason. The pain comes on when he is walking, or standing, and can last a long time. Ordinary painkillers are not strong enough to help. His specialist could find nothing 'wrong' so he went to a pain specialist who tried a steroid injection. But this didn't help. The specialist could make it hurt with pressure, and is perplexed. Says to get to the site of the pain they would have to operate and go in from the front - but he's not sure he'll be able to do anything.So my father's now in the same position as you, and tonight I've started to research on the net, and came across your post.
