This isn’t something I would usually do! Although my back operation has alleviated my leg and hip pain it hasn’t helped with my back pain yet. Unfortunately due to COVID the hospital have been unable to reprogramme me to try and help therefore I am having to have a set of 7 injections privately to improve my back pain so I can come off morphine and be able to start doing things again rather than spending all day on my bed. I have considered waiting for NHS but due to COVID this could end up being this time next year and I am already the most immobile I have been for 20 years. From about June 2020 I have been unable to do very much at all due to the amount of pain I am in and 3 weeks ago I had to start taking morphine along with my other medications to try and help which is not a place I wanted to be. Zoe has had to understand that I just cannot do much at all with her and Matt has had to help me out no end while holding down a full time job as well.
Some may think I am being cheeky and I get that but this is a genuine request. I also get there are people a lot worse off than me I am just hoping if some of my friends could even spare £5 or 10 for this it would relieve some of the pressure on my family financially for Christmas etc because I feel very guilty that this is having to be done at such a high cost.
