I then received chemo and 20 radiotherphy sessions along the way as I know you will all have good and bad days. I have a question for any one that can help I have suffered cronic back pain since the op and several answers have been given (1) Change the bed ? (2)take more pain killers e.g.liquid morphine. (3)Its nerve endings. I am really feeling down with this as I can only sleep in bed for 3-4 hours max. I can cope with what ever they throw at me during the day but please please let me sleep like a normal person I am 2 sleeping tablets each night along with 60mg of amertriptyln for nerve pains but It still does'nt solve the problem so I spend most of my nights early mornings on the e-mail so if you fancy e-mailing me I will be here as it makes long and lonely nights.I am a new member and have only had the computer a few weeks its taking a while to get the habg of it but i'm sure i will master it one day kind wishes and good luck to you all. God bless SHEILA U,K,
