Hi there, I'm sorry you're feeling so unwell. You're not alone with your pain if that makes you feel a tiny bit better. I often have pain in my kidneys and ribs then moving down to my groin. The pain in your upper thighs sounds quite similar. I have deep pelvic pain and awful aches and soreness in my upper thighs. Several doctors have told me that I shouldn't be in so much pain. One pain management doctor told me that my pain was residual pain from passing stones. Whatever I do the pain is always there. I had 5 months off work. The only pain medication that has provided me with some relief is morphine. I take two slow release tablets a day. At first I was a zombie on them but I can now work, drive and pretend to be normal. I still have pain though and when it's very bad I take liquid morphine to give me extra relief. Hope that helps even if it just lets you know you're not alone. X
Thank you. I kind of feel like crying. My husband is on morphine too. He has a blood disorder. I haven't ever passed a stone. That's the weird thing....I don't know if morphine would make my thoughts weird like the norco or not. I am not sure if I've been fully diagnosed. I'm so sorry for your pain. I know life on morphine can be hard. My husband needs it for his pain. He also beats himself up for it. He feels he's addicted. The pain management doc said he was something else, dependant? He stopped going. I think I'll tell him about the liquid morphine. Did you have pain before you passed stones? I guess it kind of helps to know I'm not alone. I think it will definitely help when I am pushing for help with the pain...
My daughter had severe pain from a ruptured cyst that they thought was appendicitis at first. The fluid collected under her appendix and we spent some time in the ER. Also, be careful with ibuprofen. It is nephrotoxic. Pain control is tough. Just get on it before it gets out of control.
Hey there, how are you and your husband doing? I understand you saying your husband is beating himself up over being on morphine. There's a certain reaction you get off people when you tell them you're on morphine. My GP has me on a low slow release dose 10mg morning and night. He says this isn't too much to get dependent on? I also top up my pain relief with paracetemol (Tylenol? If you're in the US) this does help me too. It's about finding the right combination. I was off work for 5 months and I have a drawer full of tablets that didn't work. I don't feel like a zombie or have funny dreams and I've managed to start teaching little ones again something I definitely couldn't do if I was a zombie! Keep going and remember you are so not alone! Beth x
