"Thank you to the pain team"

About: Southern General Hospital / Pain management

(as the patient),

I am on 280mg of MST (morphine). I was getting it put up 20mg every 6 months but thanks to the pain team I am on my way to lower my MST to 200mg and hopefully with them i can come off MST fully and use something weaker.

Without the pain team i would be looking to be on MST for i don't know how long, so many thanks to the pain team. They also helped me come off co-proxamol which i was taking up to 4 to 5 times the daily amount, so you could say they saved my life as well.

I think Southern general nurses in ward 3 4 & 11 are some of the best in Scotland if not Britain
