Hi Bel,

Sorry you are in so much pain. If it is your Coccyx that is causing the trouble in extreme cases it can be removed. I had mine removed nearly 20 years ago. The problem is it means a hospital stay and recovery time is at leaast two to three weeks.
That is hard enough I had a husband and teenage children at the time and they were able to look after me and the home whilst I recovered from the op. Looking after a husband/partner with dementia and recovering from an op like this would be impossible, I don't know what to suggest but you cannot function properly whilst in so much pain have you had a carers assessment done for yourself?
Sending you a cyber Hug

Judith

thanks all cross your fingers for me tommorrow

i just hope consultant can suggest somthing
i was pinning all my hopes on an op to get rid of the pain
bob is sufering cos he sees me in pain as much as i try to hide it and play it down he knows
and it is hurting him cos there is nothing he can do
love bel x

nothing seems to go right thanks sylvi

but the posative bit is bob has not got as verbly agresive as he has lately since i had to have my scooter since i said i cant cope i will walk and i ment it
talked to niki visiting psycologist today cos i feel guilty putting bob under pressure to try and stop his aggression
she says no dont feel guilty bob can control some of his aggression and he wants to love bel x

Dear bel.
Of course you mustn`t feel guilty about asking Bob to try to control some of his agression. He probably needs it pointing out to him how much it hurts you, and I`m sure he wouldn`t knowingly want to hurt you.
Love xx
