My mother is only 55, and she has Levioscholiosis and Liver disease. From this over the years, she has 3 damaged roots in her back that are compressing and she has CONSTANT back and leg and feet pain and she is always sick. Her knees are bowing in, her insteps have collapsed, her feet and legs up past her knees are SO swollen its painful to even look at and let alone imagine the pain she is in. She takes medicine but they dont really help, she is up throughout the night, she keeps falling down, losing her balance, dropping things and she has told me that most days she doesnt feel like she can go on. I dont know what I can do for her to alleviate atleast maybe even ALITTLE bit of her pain and discomfort. The doctors look at her like she is lying to them and in all honesty, SHE CAN BARELY STAND FOR MORE THAN 30 SECONDS without having to lean over and brace her weight on a counter or sit down before she collapses. She has also told me when i told her, that it looks like her body is trying to collapse on her that that is exactly how she feels like. Her back can barely hold her up. Does ANYONE know of ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING that I can do for her to help her, even if its just alittle???? She cant get a lumbar fusion as of now because of her liver disease. So that option is unattainable right now. I would be so very grateful for ANY advice. I cant stand to see my mom in such pain. She barely leaves the house because its hard for her to do anything without the unbearable pain.. I wish I could give her my body but i cant! All I can do is sit by and watch her suffer, and "PRAY CONTINUALLY." -1 THESSALONIANS 5:17 Please does anyone know of any equipment or remedies? I dont know what to ask for but advice..View Thread
