3 years ago i was diagnosed with a chronic medical/pain condition called Pancreatitis caused by contracting an infection from having a routine gall bladder removal surgery, since then i have struggled with daily excrutiating pain, nausea, vomiting, dramatic weightloss & trouble breaking down the foods in my body. It wasnt untill i got sick myself that i actually began to realise & understand what life must be like for the people out there that suffer with a chronic pain condition & have to endure daily pain. Luckily for me a new permanent pain proceedure has me looking towards a brighter future & hoping for a pain free life to come. So what is this new surgery? Basically the surgeon cuts & completely severs a nerve in the body that causes pain & cramping in the stomache, sounds relatively easy enough but actually it isnt, in order to do the proceedure they have to deflate one of my lungs so that they can go in behind all my organs to locate the nerve & cut it, in amongst alot of other nerves that cause feeling in the body. It is a surgery that can be tricky but that can also make me completely pain free, a decision that i have not taken lightly but also necessary if i am to live a pain free life again. I have been on the waiting list now for a little over 12months now & finally got the call this week to go in & have my surgery on the 28th of this month, so the time is finally here for me to take that leap of faith & hope it pays off so that i can look forward to a happier future with my son & get back to being that active mum i was before all of my health problems.
To all the mums out there who suffer from any health issues, you are not alone & there is always someone out there who can sympathise with what ur going thro, so dont feel defeated & never give up, stay possitive & hope for a better future
