The Macmillan Doctor, who appeared young enough to be my grand daughter let alone a daughter, had a wonderful bedside manner and was very helpful in examining me and prescribing alternatives to the primary pain killer medication I have been taking.
I am now, after more confusion with the GP surgery over the prescription request, on OxyContin [prolonged release] and OxyNorm [quick release] instead of the morphine based medication. The thinking behind this is that I will receive pain relief on a much more effective basis and I should experience no pain at all from my lower back and ribs [RH front]. The other alternative to this, should it not work, is to have nerved block administered by a procedure involving needles [I am surmising most of the needle bit as I have not yet opted for or been informed of its true nature.]
My wife has once again run around like a fly with an arse the colour of the sky all day getting my medication sorted.
