We made it and everyone had a wonderful time. My parents and Mil did very well traveling. I had alot of back pain and hip and leg pain. I had no idea that dragging all that luggage would be so painful but it was. Now it's time to get back to work and my pain level is high but thats nothing new. I do have an appt. on the 9th for a new mri and we'll go from there but i'm sooooo ready to find some form of pain relief. I hope everyone here will have a lpd.

Welcome back and I'm so happy you enjoyed yourself. My hubby and I are hoping to do an Alaskan cruise soon!

Here's hoping the 9th gets here fast and your MRI clearly shows your doctors what they need to do to get you some relief...FAST!

Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Severe Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoralacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started

Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT

Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily

   Welcome Back! *hugg* I am glad you had a good time! Now all you need is a fresh MRI and a renewed approach to your pain management! Of course you are in our prayers here. Try to find a  few moments to rest if you can.

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip! Alaska is one of the places I've always wanted to see.

I hope things will settle down with the pain soon and that sleeping in your own bed will help!

Best to you!

Welcome back! I do want you to know that I really envy you that trip to Alaska! You know I lived in Anchorage for 2 years(1974-1976) and then ten years later I lived 30 miles outside of Fairbanks at Eielson AFB for four more years, (1983- 1987) all I can say is Alaska is a beautiful state and those two tours that I had up there, were some of the best years I had spent in the Air Force! If the winters were not so harsh I might consider wanting to go back! But I sure would love to go back up there just for a visit visit! The land of the Midnight Sun! If nothing else your post has brought back many fine memories for me!
