    Hello M Cooper

    I dont know anything about you but you can pour out all your feelings and I am sure we can add a bit of advice.

    Rather than not eat all- how about something like the Newcastle Diet? Drinks with added vitamins and minerals?

    What have you tried so far?

    Unfortunately, no one on a forum can take the neuropathy pain away. What pain killers have you been given? Are you using an anti D? Something a close friend used was to plug a table fan into the electric at the foot of the bed and have it blowing cold air on feet and legs which worked fairly well

I have been prescribed oxicodone an opiate pain killer which does help does have side effects of being drowsy and bad constipation . Please ask for help it is out there

    You need to ask your Doc about something for the pain. They are not supposed to leave you in pain, as it means you can't heal.

    Doesn't it p*ss you off when you have smiling pretty girls and Dr's around your bed telling you every thing will be alright?
    You have the right to whine, bi*ch and scream (thumbs up) I can only imagine how I would feel in your place, but it wouldn't be pretty

    Agree you can not drive
    Agree your dr and hospital if they have done nothing are tossers
    And only you can do anything about it and that shouldnt be the case but you are only a number to them it is your family and friends you are a person to l hope that whatever you do you can get some strong painkiller into yourself.
    Kman on here is in constant pain but they do their best he is on about 14 mixed painkillers a day.
    l will ask him to look at this thread and maybe wendie his lovely mrs or him could send you some advice in private message.
