Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding your friend’s condition. However, we cannot provide much help on the forum as it is limited to answering general inquiries. If your friend have a pain killer that been prescribed to him by his doctor, he should take it. Other than that, further management can be done with a bone (orthopaedics) doctor. We suggest you to advise him to seek orthopaedics’ help so that he can be assessed and treated accordingly.

You may help him mentally by listening to his pain and complaints, provide him emotional support and keep persuading him to seek help with the doctors.

Since he is having a suicidal tendency, it is better to bring him to seek help with a doctor so that appropriate measure and management can be done on him.

Worry no more about your back pain by contacting our Orthopaedics specialist here!

If you have any more question and need a second opinion, please contact us at ( DoctorOnCall ) to speak with our doctors privately via phone call. We will value your privacy.
