It's been awhile since I've stopped by to see how everyone is so I thought it was about time I did. Went to my Pain Management appt. yesterday and am so happy to say that this is my 3rd appt. where I've been able to walk in and say that my pain level is ranging from a 1 to 3 level. It's amazing. My pain pump is working well and hasn't needed to be adjusted for the last 3 visits. I'm still taking percocet for break through pain but less than 5 a day. I am in shock at how well I've been feeling pain wise and as long as I don't over do it I'm good.
There has been a new problem that I've been dealing with and that is my stomach. I've had so much nausea and problems with constipation which have stopped me from being able to say that I'm really feeling good but I'm working on that.
I guess what I really want to say is thank you all for the help and support you have all given me this year, it was a godsend to find all of you and have you all to talk to and whine and vent to. I'm so glad I found you because there were times when I don't know what I would of done with out you all. So thank you for that. I wish that all of you could have the luck I seem to have with my pain pump. Actually I just wish that all of you could enjoy a day a hour a minute of this new pain free feeling that I have been blessed with at last after all these years.
So I guess that's about it for today but I'll try not to be a stranger for so long because you are all on my mind and in my prayers and if I could just see one of you get the relief that I have had, well, it would be so wonderful.
Take care everyone and if anyone is considering the pain pump I would say go for it. It took almost 2 years since I had the pump put in and those were tough years but all in all it was truly worth it to feel like I do now.
Sending best wishes to everyone and maybe someone else will get to this point as well
which would be so brilliant. Hang in there all because you just never know what is around the corner for you. Believe me I didn't and I was pleasantly surprised to find my self where I am right now. My Man and I are finally going to take a well deserved vacation, thinking about a cruise, very soon. It will be the first real vacation we have had together in the 22 years of our relationship so I'm over the moon with joy.
Hugs and wishes for a less pain day to you all.
