As many know SWIF has some major problems with severe pain in his abdominal area. This pain is chronic and acute usually resulting in a hospital visit once per week where IV morphine is administered by a doctor. SWIF in his long and quite unfruitful search for alternatives to opiates due to there pleasurable however addictive side effects has eventually for him come to an end. SWIF found that Entonox (50% NO and 50% Oxygen) was very effective for his pain even more so than the various opiates. He therefore tired to use it and stay off the opiates when going into hospital. Unfortunatly but understandably the hospital will not allow him to breathe Entonox for 8 hours (the duration of pain) as constant breathing would be required. So ususally SWIF is given either a high dose of Benzo or morphine which rids him of pain but leaves him pretty rough the following days. SWIF following the dissaccociative route tried firstly DXM but gaining no analgesic effect moved on to Ketamine. SWIF finds Ketamine unparalelled when it comes to analgesia linked to his pain, however how can he get prescribed this? He mentioned it to his GP and the GP laughed saying it was only used as a horse traquilizer. Is it worth talking to his pain specialist about it or will he get the same response? It is so effective however far too expensive to consistantly get illegally. Any information would be appriciated.
