Low Down on Us

Thursday, November 12, 2020

My daughter has lost almost 60 pounds since she has her legs wrapped up; all water weight. But she is still battling constipation because a brainless neurologist decided to take away her Lyrica that she was on for pain because of neuropathy and fibro. At first he totally had her go off of the pills; from 450 milligrams to nothing then only brought her up to 150.Now she has either constipation or diarrhea plus nausea at times and headaches. She has asked her primary doctor to intervene.

As for me I am still. battling knee, back and leg pain. The doctor's assistant put me on a higher dose of Lyrica to help and a different muscle relaxer. Plus she put me on Metformin to help with weight loss s I can have my back surgery. Since the neurosurgeon wanted me to lose 25 pounds. So far I am not ding very good; going up and down because of IBS.

Having problems with the Internet here; been trying to get a copy of the February 16 annual business meeting to the pastor but he never gets it. Even tried copying and pasting and he said this morning he never got it yet. He is coming by a little later for a printed copy. Our Open Office does not open up in emails for him. Do not have Word anymore had trouble with passwords.

    Oh, I am so sorry you both are having health issues. Laura, what kind of back surgery do you need. I have been there and done that.

    I am so sorry you and Jennifer have such awful medical challenges Laura.
    I have you in my prayers hun and hope the medics can find ways to help you.
    Sometimes it takes several doctors to find one that really understands how to help you best, I had to wait almost 20 years for the correct diagnosis of dystonia so TOTALLY understand your frustrations

    Love to you both, don't give up. emoticon emoticon
