My uro wants to give it six more months to see if the orchiectomy has made a difference or not, he wants me to be referred for CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) while I wait.
I feel it’s impossible to change ones behavior from feeling pain, a patient can’t help but analyse pain, you just want the pain to stop.
I already help myself manage the pain, help myself by behaving in ways that help me cope. I try and get myself interested in other things, but because the pain interferes with everything I do from the moment I get dressed in the mornings, what else can I do?
I wish I could give my pain to the people that suggest these things, then see how they cope with disabling pain everyday.
