So while I was away in florida my house caught in fire. Ya a fire. Everyone including the dogs are ok thank god. Spending 3 months at the Marriott hotel was awesome. I’ve gained 10 pounds they fed us so well. Lol. The house is slowly coming along and getting back together its nice cause its so new. Everything from the ceiling to the floor. Picking paints and cabinets toilets etc has been an fun experience. Ya its all a headache but it’ll be better in the long run. In fact it almost finished at this point. As you know I haven’t been good on posting here lately. God bless everyone hope your all well.
THEY HAVE DONE ALOT OF TESTS, AND ARE GIVING HIM A CAT SCAN AND AN MRI SOON, POOR DAD had a very uncomfortable test and it caused a lot of pain, dad never screams re pain:( we havent got any results yet, but i am certain we will know something today, again i will keep you informed. lets just pray nothing is life threatening:( mostly worried about the mass on his kidney:(.UGHHH THIS IS SO STRESSFUL, and the HOLIDAYS ARE HERE, THATS HARD ENOUGH ALREADY:(
SORRY AGAIN….. that i havent been faithful with the updates re; my new treatment, which by the way.IT DEFINATELY HELPING ME, still have pain, but can function and its way less,UNTILL 2 THE PAST 3 DAYS(ITS BEEN 3 WEEKS THOUGH) I have slowly got more pain and pinched nerves a muscle spasms.. besides apologizing for not keeping my promise, DAD HAS BEEN SICK………..Thtas why i Havent been here, Dad suffered a minor stroke right before thanksgiving, so of course i came to MASS, i live in Maine, AS SOON AS I HEARD…………HE has since came home from the hospital, he is slowly getting all his memory,functions back, as soon as he gained “HIS NORMAL” he suffered from bleeding of the rectum:(. I know i havent spoke of Dad, but he has a curvature of the spine that’s at a 45 degree angle, so it IS amazing he stands let alone walks, well long story short, hes been struggling with walking for a while now, and also suffers from C.O.P.D. I..just to catch you up quickly………….
TUESDAY NOV 20th,
WED NOV 21rst.
Dad is still very confused and not remembering things and people to well, a lot he talks of is the far past, the good news is the stroke wont leave him with any signs, they said after a week maybe less he will gain his memory and feeling of his face, confusion will get less. he will not suffer any permanent damage, of course he is a high risk for another stroke, and next time he wont be so lucky. but for now WE are all happy of the news.
just an update,
its been 2 WEEKS WED, WHEN I GOT MY FIRST RELIEF OF FIBRO PAIN, IT HAS HIT ME THIS MORNING WITH A TON OF BRICKS AGAIN:( TY TO KELLY AT THE PAIN CARE CLINIC FOR SQUEEZING ME IN TODAY FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOTS A FEW DAYS EARLIER, SO I CAN HAVE A GOOD THANKSGIVING AND VISIT MOM AND DAD IN MASS,:) I SO DON’T MISS FEELING SO BAD AND FOGGY TOO, I THANK GOD AND MY NEW DOCTOR THAT I CAN GET RELIEF, I DON’T KNOW HOW I EVER MANAGED, GOOD DAY ALL.
I’ts the morning after, well afternoon. of my first round of shots. I woke up this morning and my head has already thawed out some,and I DIDN’T HAVE FIBRO FOG, I do have a very minor tightness in my head, but its better than most mornings, My spine was pretty sore, but i had no spasms in my upper back,( around my shoulder area) granted the soreness of my spine could be stemming from my thoracic or lumbar spine, since the nerves are still being pinched from other spasms not yet attacked. And its cold and snowing which leaves me to believe these injections have done something in my favor, The needles used were like that of a spinal tap very uncomfortable and at times hurt bad.first she numbed the area of skin, injected a regular Novocaine in it, then proceeded to add 1 or 2 of these ingredients, 1.(Lidocain)long-lasting Novocaine ( Triancimbalone) which is a steroid. 3.(methofenadone) an inflammatory. she entered the start spot pushed the needle through a muscle( that’s what hurt,was loads of pressure and sharp burning,my doctor kept telling the muscles…”come on let me in,” lol, I guess some were so tight she had a hard time puncturing it. I’m not allowed a hot tub or heat long shower to hit the worked on areas, for it can counteract the medicines injected, strange, but doctors orders, and i don’t want to jeopardize anything, in 2 weeks i go for a few more shots, and so on… with that said, i will end the update, for it is still uncomfortable to sit here to long,
ALL AND ALL I HAVE FOUND MINOR RELIEF,(WHICH IS HUGE TO ME) BUT I HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO YET. WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED, THANKS AND HAVE A BLESSED DAY.
I KNOW THIS POST IS THE SAME DAY AS MY FIRST VISIT POST, I WAS JUST TRYING TO CATCH UP A LITTLE, AND TODAY I HAD MY 2ND APPOINTMENT AT THE PAIN CARE CLINIC,……………………………………..WELL its official, my first round of shots, a lot more to it than i thought, each shot consisted of 2 needles and 3 different injections, she also got 4 vertebrae on each side, so the shots took a while, my knots were tight and she had a hard time puncturing through them, my head is totally numb, due to LIDOCAIN injections on 2 different spots, it numbed my whole head, minus the forehead, for 2 days, this will relieve some pain for me while the the inflammatory and steroids kick in, I’m feeling tight and achy, BUTat the same time feeling light headed, but all went good, lets hope in 2 days it will make a difference, if it does we will continue to the shots until every vertebrae is injected. DID I MEANTION I DONT HAVE A HEADACHE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS,( MOSTLY VERY MINOR) WHEN THE NOVACAIN WEARS OFF IN 2 DAYS ILL PROLLY HAVE ONE BUT AFTER THAT I SHOULD BE RID AT LEAST FOR A COUPLE WEEKS, MAYBE MONTHS:) YAY JUST SAYINGG..LOL
