I'm just laying around today after the pulsed radio frequency I had yesterday. It went well, 3 times to get the IV in, but thats nothing new for me! I love being a pin cushion...hehe The nurse that I usually have ran in and did the IV in a second, I was so relieved! They gave me more to put me out, so I was really groggy all of yesterday. I slept well overnight then woke up in such pain!! I am so sore from it, but I always am, but my mom helped me out of bed and is making me breakfast now :) I dont have to go back to work until wednesday, so there are days of resting ahead of me....and its going to be 75 degrees today!
Hopefully I will get about 4 months of pretty good relief with this Radio frequency to hold me off until the summer, when I might be having surgery. I see the surgeon again on wednesday, so we shall see. It is very difficult to dis entrap a nerve...to actually find it and free it successfully. So I have a decision to make...do we try this surgery..my pain doc feels I should, its the only way to potentially be pain free....I cant even imagine if that could happen! Otherwise, of course I will have to manage it forever, so I am thinking it is worth the shot or else I'll never know, anyone else agree? Thanks for listening....
