Hi, I am a 61yr old male, 10 yrs ago I had a right radical nephrectomy due to a large carcinoma, caused by chemical poisoning, 2 years later my gallbladder was removed. I have suffered chronic pain since due to adhesions and nerve damage, the scar is 33cm horizontally across my abdomin. I am now operating agricultural machinery. Occasionally over the last 2 years, towards the end of a long day while walking short distances across the fields I have suffered from dizziness spells, along with darkening vision, usually bringing me to my knees til I recover, probably for about 30secs. Then I get up and continue on, my pulse rate is normal, I end up with severe abdominal pain, and a good headache. I suspect it could be from my abdomin area but, due to the nerve damage there are parts that I cannot feel. I am working a large distance from any town or medical facilities. For the pain I am taking Codiene, Paracetomol, Gabapentin and Nortriptylene. Thanks. Ken.D
