[More]mb. I am also taking Livial. I am only back on it the last couple of weeks and am hoping that it keeps things at bay as I am dreading another operation.

They said that it will take a long time for the feeling to come back. Has this happened to anyone else and if so did the feeling come back? I am new to this site and not really sure how much i should be writing here, should I tell my whole story or is what ive just said enough for now. I am at the stage now that I really need support and it is a relief to know I am not alone in this horrible disease. I also suffer with chronic back pain.
