I am new here and hope some could share experiance. Please inform if my question is not suitable for this group. And sorry in advance for my english - My native language is Lithuanian.
My question is regarding chronic pain. Do you have en experiance how to manage it?
6 year ago diagnosis of arteriovenues marformation of spine has been confirmed for my father. Before that doctors thought that shadows they saw are metastasis of renal cancer and the only way to do something was radiotherapy. Then we changed a lot of doctors and after more then two years we had fist surgery - malformation was fixed with glue (sorry I do not remember the name of procedure)
Today my father is disabled from the waist. However he feel chronic pain in legs and back. Sometimes he talks that it would be better to die than to suffer THAT pain. We live in very small country and as far as I understand nobody knows how to help him. He is taking morphine and other drugs few times per day, but pain decrease only a bit..
Do you have expariance how to fight with the pain? I would be very glad if you could share your experiance with me.
