Second Verse, Same as the First?

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Have you ever been in so much pain that you couldn't even answer the phone? Or eat? Or do anything but moan and cry in bed?

Ah, good. I was worried that I might have been the only one.

Anyway, it's been REALLY bad since last night... I mean, probably the worst pain I've felt since before the surgery. It was also so different that I was concerned that something may have gone wrong with the surgery. I immediately told the doctors last night, and they just as immediately set me up for an MRI last night. I'll be hearing about the results today, God willing.

Right now, I'm waiting to hear about when they're going to transfer me to this nursing home in Far Rockaway. Still a lot of insurance red tape to deal with where that's concerned, but not too much.

The pain, though... it scared the hell out of me. Not just the intensity, but of how it SPREAD. It's now all the way down to my fingertips, which have also started growing numb. Before you ask, yes, I told the doctor on call immediately; last thing I want is something severe to happen because I withheld information. I promise to keep you all in the loop as things go on. God bless you all!

    YES, to your question. I hope the pain subsides soon. I wouldn't wish that pain on my worst enemy. Mine was my back about 3 years ago. That's why I have to keep myself moving...which is hard sometimes.

    Thanks for the update...I wish there was some way to ease your pain. It's so good that you let the doctors know exactly what's going on - a lot of people forget to do that.

    I pray nothing is out of the ordinary, and that this awful pain means some kind of healing is happening. May God bless you and keep you strong in the face of this. We are all praying for you....
