They gave me high dose of steriods in the hospital and then none before I left. Now I am starting to feel just awful. It's the steriod let down. So not nice! Tonight I feel just horrible. I don't have a fever or I would be calling the doctor. I'm going to try to sleep this off and pray I feel better tomorrow. And I will be so happy when I can take a deep breath without discomfort. I don't feel good and I think I have lost my patience and my good mood. Tomorrow I should feel better. I am still very happy that the surgery worked. Just whining.
hippimom, smokeyswife, emmi, justchattin, dbab, mom46, ericsmom, thankyou for you thoughts and prayers. You are all so helpful.
Today I am taking things very slow. I have a headache from coming off steriods too fast. And to add more torture I am on day 3 of NO COFFEE. Boohooo. I am trying to get off coffee to increase my chances of no more palpitations. I miss the energy I got from coffee. I am still really weak. My whole body still aches and I have a nagging pain that radiates to my foot. It's not bad. Just annoying. I'm taking Vicodin now. I want COMFORT. If that doesn't work then I'm going to make a call. The artery they used at the groin area runs very close to the nerve that runs down your leg. And I think it's a little irritated. So if it doesn't get any better then I'll call. Day 2 and 3 are usually the hardest. I am hoping by tomorrow afternoon to feel a lot better. Please. I see my Rheumy next week too. I'm watching tv and sleeping off and on. So far the surgery has been so worth it.
Feeling a little better today. I have only had chest pain 2 times so far instead of all day. I can walk without getting short of breath. I am still weak, achy, pain down my legs and headaches off and on. Tomorrow should be even better. Tomorrow I am going to try to leave the house for a short trip to the store. I'm going to try.
Thankyou hippimom, smokeyswife, and cnskris for all you support. It means a lot to me.
Today is better than yesterday. I didn't have to stay on the heating pad all day. I'm heating pad free. lol I was able to get some groceries and then I was exhausted. So now I'm back home and resting. Still have a little chest pain this afternoon but not bad. I'm going to call the cardiologist tomorrow morning and make sure this is still expected. I will be glad when I'm back to Lupie normal. lol. Mouth sores are trying to invade my upper palate. I'm taking some extra folic acid and using my magic mouth wash to hopefully get rid of them. I was so happy that with all this stress on my body I was able to make it this far without mouthsores. I'm still achy, tired, headache only this afternoon (improvement), neck is sore and pain down both legs has decreased a lot. Flexeril is being very good to me. I haven't taken any Vicodin today either. Yeaaaa! I just keep telling myself that everyday I will feel better. I see my Rheumy soon too. I have so many doctors to see this month I could make it a part time job.
