New Dr New options
Thursday, February 28, 2008
Well since I lost all my specialist Drs at the clinic I had to start over AGAIN!!!!! I think I have finally found a wonderful Dr who understands what I'm going through. She is a female!!!! Hummm I wonder if that helps?? LOL Just kidding! Anyway, since I don't suffer from just one ailment that makes things a little more difficult to manage. It can be kinda depressing to think about all that is wrong with me also since I'm only 47 years young. But I'm going to list them as much as I can remember that is! LOL So here goes:
I've had 2 back surgeries the last one was a fusion with rods,
severe migraines that have a weird name that I can't remember,
Tendinitous on my rotar cuffs with calcium deposits on my tendons,
carpal tunnel in both wrists,
Fibrmyalgia, Bursitus in my left hip,
Bulging disc right below my rods in my back,
numbness and nerve pain in my left leg and foot & the start of it in the right,which they say is nuropathy,
Low tolerance to medications, which is really a bummer.
Ok Thats all I can think of and I hope thats all there is. I know alot of people have it alot worse off that me. At least I'm still walking very slow some days but none the less still going.
My new Dr has increased my pain meds to 3 a day which I was affraid to try cause I didn't want to react to them but I really can't take the pain any more!!!!!
I really am considering an implant for my back. That would help with some of it. It doesn't help with Fibro pain but maybe that would be doable (is that a word? LOL) if some of the other pain was gone.
I'm so glad I have such a great Hubby!!! He really is soooo understanding. The think that bothers me is we have to revolve our life around my pain days. But he don't mind as much as I do.
I just think some days this is really no life!!!!! But each day I just plug on.
You find things that you can do and enjoy doing. I really enjoy my puppies. They are so fun. Some days a lot of work but they are the reason I get up in the morning. Bailey makes sure of that!!! LOL Buster sleeps with me so he would sleep all day if I did. He's pretty layed back.
Well I guess I have rambled long enough for now. If I don't get up and move soon it may be to late!!!
Hugs and Smiles to all who read this!!!!!! :)
