Well I've been home 2 days now and I'm already going crazy...... As most of you know I've been battling a huge foot problem that has come to a head
and to tell you the truth I can't walk hardly at all and it's got me down Family... I wish I knew what to do cause the thought of a major operation has
got me down I'd rather they just take the foot off and give me a new graphite one.... It's just got me down cause what would happen if I can't do this
any more...... If I have the operation I'm down for at least 4 months and it may not even work cause it's so bad and I let it go on so long, but I've been in
a huge amount of pain for over a year every day and now I can't even walk for long..... The huge amounts of Motrin I've been taking is now effecting my
liver and kidneys and my doctors said I've got to stop taking them of run the risk of other problems.... Yea this is becoming a huge issue and I'm not
sure what to do about it all...... Ben ( not a happy camper )
I'm sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time. I understand both why you desire to have the surgery; as well as, not wanting to do it at all due to the fear of being worse off. As for Motrin and most other pain medications, they're simply hard on the body long term. I know when I was facing back surgery, it simply came to the point that I could not take the pain anymore and not being able to function; so I had the surgery knowing that I could wake up worse than I was with the alternative possibility of being pain free after a while. I'm happy to say that my results have been very successful. No one can make the decision for you; just know that support is always around you and that we wish you the best.
