As I am still on pain level 6/10 and that I have ONLY an appointment on April 17, 2013 with the surgeon, so I decided to collect some information about chronic pain after an inguinal hernia surgery. Apparently 10-16%, some say even 30% of patients suffer from chronic pain after the inguinal hernia surgery. Here below my link collection in different languages (I am multilingual…):

Day 454 after the surgery… More than 1 year!

Pain Scale 6/10Yesterday I got the results from last colonoscopy, a very good one! NO CANCER found anymore, but although they found a new polyp of 1cm diameter (0.4 inches), but not presenting  cancer! I am feeling very HAPPY about that. Next colonoscopy will be in a year, it is BETTER to control it, one never knows…

I am still on pain level 6-7/10 and so I had also yesterday an appointment with the family doctor where I got a prescription for a new medication, “LYRICA 75mg“, a medication which should calm the pain in the nerves…

My pain story started after a surgery of two inguinal hernias, and after all the examinations done by an UROLOGY specialist this one didn’t find any UROLOGY problems and told me to visit again the surgery specialist to find out from where the pain comes. But he told me also that it would be probably a nerve or some nerves who were getting touched or other possibility also is that the nerves are getting touched by the implanted artificial net…

Wait and see… Tomorrow I will contact the surgery specialist to get an appointment again..

Day 445 after the surgery… More than 1 year

Pain Scale 6/10The pain is increasing again and I am now on pain scale level 6/10, not knowing what is happening!??? My moral is (???), need to fight hard to net letting me go down! It’s too long anyway, I need to upgrade my courage as I start to rant too much on Social-Media, not good 😦

I am NOT anymore the person I was before the operation, I wish to become the same again as I start to hate myself for what I am now (mentality)! No life quality anymore with chronically pain, it starts slowly to destroy me, even spouse told me that I changed too much; not good at all to hear it from her…

Day 443 after the surgery… More than 1 year

pain scale 4-5/10

I finished all the tests on Urology and the doctor says that there are no Urology problems! OK, good news, but still on the pain which increased again! I am now on 4-5/10 on the pain scale. The doctor told me that I should visit again the surgery doctor, probably there were some nerves touched during the surgery. Will the pain ever go away or must I stay for the rest of my life with it, not feeling confident at all anymore…

I had also a colonoscopy again, 6 months after the last check up as on the last check up a polyp from 2 cm in diameter (0.8 inches) was found. A new polyp was found with already 1 cm diameter (0.4 inches) after only 6 months! On March 19, 2013 I will know then the results…

Never ending story, to be continued…
