Exactly what I have been going through since I had surgery in 2015.
( I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in October 2014, I had surgery in 2015 and was left with lots of complications such as endometriosis – i never even had period pain before so this was a shock to the system and i cannot feel the side of my right thigh, which i was told was temporary due to anaesthesia, and chronic pain ETC. I would go into more details but I do not believe I am ready to share that right now so I am going to keep this post short. )
Every time I go to see the doctor they pass me along or say
“have you seen a psychologist – I think its all in your head”
“you will have to learn to live with this now and accept that you might be in pain for your whole life and you should come to terms with that…there is nothing we can do”. 😐
They have no idea what is wrong with me, so I also have no idea whats wrong with me. you’d think if someone is struggling to walk, sleep or even sit up you would do more to help them.
Now I’m so against going to the doctor, I was so done with waiting around for others to fix/help me.
I spend my days strengthening myself and getting used to the pain and I have been researching, self educating and developing myself to be the healthiest I can be in hopes to relieve my pain.
Its almost been 4 years, and only now through helping myself – do I see that I can be in agonising pain and still live my life.
My message to you,
Do your best not to live your life as the victim forever,
( I know how hard it can be when its difficult to even physically move )
Take your time to recover as much as you can and eventually pick yourself up.
Turn that problem into a stepping stone,
That you can lay down to solidify a path to a stronger you.
Love and light x
