PAlady, I did my intake for surgery over the phone today. Everything is set. I am journaling my pain each day as I am frustrated by not getting the relief I need. I know that the SCS is going to help with the pain during the day. It has been getting worse and I am trying to work less hours. I have been not going in as early and leaving earlier. I am not working any 12 plus hours a day. I vented last night in my journal as I started this whole journey 2 1/2 years ago because I did not sleep due to pain. Here I am getting ready for my 3rd surgery and knowing that it is not going to help me sleep. I am going to look for a new PMS even if it means having to take a leave, which they won't give me as somthing has to change. I have had a very difficult week pain wise as well as stress from work. I wish I could just claim the two were connected but anymore it just does not matter. I have pain regardless of what the stress level is.
I hope you don't have to reschedule. Not that any of us look forward to poking, proding and those other things we don't like but are necessary. I will keep you in my thoughts over the weekend.
I'm so sorry to hear about the muscle spasms, PAlady. They can be so debillitating, scared to move for cramping. I hope all the heat packs and back braces help you to relax. Endo as well as colonoscopy can't be fun. Hopefully they will really sedate you and look out for your back. I'm sure you will tell them to look after it for you. My goodness such a lot to deal with, my thoughts are with you.
I haven't been posting much myself , its end of semester for me, so lots of long days spent assessing, I'm very tired, the codeine just doesn't seem to work anymore, but I have a long weekend ahead of me so I will put you firmly in my positive vibes and hopefully you'll feel the benefit by Monday. Hugs to you, golitho.
I just wanted to wish you a Happy Day today! I am sending you Positive thoughts! Tomorrow will be a much better day for you than today is! That I am sure of! Last Friday my soon to be Ex had a Colonoscopy she had never had that done before, heck she has never been put out or ever had any type of surgery or procedure done before. And Thursday ( her Prep day) you would have thought she was going to die or something, the way she was carrying on about it. In one way I kind of felt sorry for her, but in another way I kept thinking " yeah now you know what I have to go through, every year! and you didn't hear me carrying on like that!" I didn't say that though! But I sure was thinking it! But I know, the prep isn't a pleasant experience! And it is not something I would want anybody to have to go through!
So PALady I do wish you well to TODAY! and I do hope things come out alright
Good Luck to You!
