I suffered a back injury a couple of years back which led to surgery and have remained on pain medication ever since. I work full time and I have reduced my medications as much as possible but fear I may never be able to be completely off everything. My husband and I were planning on starting a family prior to my accident in 2010... and then that plan went on hold, awaiting recovery and to be medication free. I'm now almost 30, and the doctors say this pain will be for life...
I just don't know what I can do. I spoke to my GP who said I can't take any medication while pregnant. He was not very understanding of my position. I completely understand the medication free philosophy as I want a wonderfully healthy and happy baby. However if I will never be pain free, will I never be able to conceive?
I am sure that other people here have had chronic conditions and I would really love to here your stories, experiences and thoughts.
