‘Life is wonderful’ being pain-free after 40 years

Alison Cameron, from Dorset, was 17 when she had appendicitis and went into hospital.

“I had my appendix out and I remember I came round out of the anaesthetic screaming, the pain was something else.”

It was the start of a “horrendous” three years of investigation before “they came to the conclusion through a process of elimination, it was nerve damage”.

Over the next 30 years, Alison had more than 50 injections, known as cryoblocks, to freeze the site of her abdominal pain, but none of them stopped the pain for more than six months.
