Lignacaine infusion

Postby catwoman » Sat Aug 28, 2010 5:25 pm

Hi, I am new to this site and would like to say Hi to everyone. I am also looking for some information, I am on the waiting list to have an IV Lignacaine infusion. I haev cancelled this twice as I have been told by my pain specialist that it can bring on a heart attack and other side effects. I have spoken to a lady that had it done just over a year ago and she is now almost confined to a wheelchair as her pain is very much worse. I would like to know if anyone on here as had it done that has had a beneficial effect from it. I am really struggling as to which way I should go on it, I dont want to mess the hospital about again or for them to think that I can t be that bad or I would be having it done, I am in agony most days and would gladly have it done if I knew it was 100% safe and effective, any help would be welcomed.
