Dear blake,

i hope you get some relief.

it might be to late to learn but deep meditation can help with pain management, its just a thought.

actually its the lack of thought that does it. luckily a lack of thought is easy for me.

i guess its a wonderful place if you need, i hope they care for you well.

Pain sucks, why are they not helping you more? If in pain you would think being in the hospital would be the place to be...

Sending prayers for you.....Hope you feel better soon...

Didn't know you were in the hospital and what happened. Ask them for stronger drugs, you shouldn't be in that much pain. Hope you get to come home soon and are feelng better. Merry Christmas.

Sorry to hear this is how you are spending Christmas Day....what happened???
Hoping it is an "Too much eggnog while putting up the Christmas tree" story, and not a cancer story but suspect it is the latter one causing the problems.
Very sorry this is part of your holiday season. Get well soon please okay? and then you can have a "do-over Christmas."
Thinking of you!

Praying your pain subsides because it is the worse. I was in great pain yesterday and was really worried but it did subside over night and today was pretty good. I hate to hear about your pain.

Very sorry to hear you're in the hospital and in pain- especially a bummer in a major way over Christmas. Yes, it does seem that they could do a better job with managing your pain. Do they know what the problem is? (sorry if I missed a post where you already talked about this).

Take care- I will say a prayer for you-

Got some of the underlying issues cleared out, but the pain persists. In about an hour I get a pain-pump installed, which should allow me to go home.

Hope you all had a Merry Xmas, and wishing you all a Happy New Year!

Is in! Apparently it will take a few days to work, but the first thing I notice is that I can kid around with the staff and my family; humor and actual pain don't seem to mix well with me.

The pump is a small flask of morphine placed above my right hip, which delivers a small, steady dose directly to my spine. They also give me a little remote control to bump it up if I ever want to play football, or feel like arguing with a cop.

The idea is to deliver powerful anti-pain meds locally so that the do not cause the kind of systemic damage these meds are wont to do (opium is a TCM treatment for diarrhea).

Now, all I need to get taken care of is this small turkey between my legs. The nurses want to truss it up, but that just makes me concerned about ulterior motives....

Glad to hear you got it addressed AND got your humor back. I rely on mine to get me through the bleakest times. Sounds like other things are working right too if you are having Forum fantasies about the nurses :)
Glad you are better~

So sorry to hear you landed up in hospital and with this pain. But very glad to hear you are hooked up now with a pump -- and with the prospect of getting outa there. For me, "getting sprung" from hospital always helps the humour scales also!!

Thinking of you
