I did not initially think that the pain managemnt and the course would help me. Although, something changed since doing the Pain Management Programme as I realised that other people are also in pain and some more than me. I have now learnt to take ownership to manage my pain.
I have learnt a lot about myself and to mange so am not a burden to the health profession.
Although I still have pain, I can now overcome it by staying positive and manage myself by using a TENS machine, pace my activities such as walking, use relaxation regularily and use my flare up plan when I get stuck.
I feel 8/10 confident to manage now and after many years confident to be discharged from the pain service.
