I'm new to the group and have joined to help my mum. My mother was involved in a car accident about 5 weeks ago, she was crushed in the door and the body of the car against a wall. She suffered, 7 broken ribs, bruised her lungs, Ruptured spleen, lacerations to a kidney and liver, a break to her pelvis 1 in the front and one in the back right opposite each other, a laceration to the ligament on her knee and the door frame of the car pin her shin between the door and the frame work of the car.
She is healing nice but is suffering with nerve pain in her foot, this impacted most of her left side. She is on 400ml of Nuerotin 3 times a day, 20mg of Oxycodone ER twice a day and 5-10mg Oxycodone quick release for break through pain. She is taking all these but the pain is so painful she is sitting here in tears and crying out in pain. I tried massage, heat treatments, cold treatments, and now we have resorted to apply bengay but nothing seems to be helping her. I wondered if you guys would have any ideas that could help her.
I hope I posted this right, and if I didn't please forgive me. Thanks for any suggestions.
Thanks a very worried daughter
