I've just come off a week of feeling pretty good overall. Saw my doctor yesterday, tweaked my meds a bit (upping the dose of Cesamet), but overall, things seem to be working for me in keeping my pain around a 3-4. I've lost a few more pounds, so I'm now at 38 pounds lost since October last year. I have 15 to go to hit my target of 130lbs (I'm 5'2"). My doctor noted my blood sugars have been a little bit high for the last few months, but said we'll just keep an eye on it and not do anything at the moment. She also said my cholesteral is a bit high, but again, we'll just watch it.
So, overall, it was a good visit. We've also confirmed the Orthopedic surgeon now has all the paperwork necessary to set up an appointment so we'll see what happens. This surgeon apparently triages his own cases, picking the ones he wants to work on in the order he wants. I have no idea how long I might have to wait to see him, but at least he has my info now for sure!!
My hubby and I are flying to Winnipeg, Manitoba this afternoon (from Calgary) for the wedding of two dear friends tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the fun, but not the travel so much. At least I have lots of room in the seats...we booked the emergency exit for my hubby so he can have some leg room (he's 6'5"). It's supposed to be quite hot this weekend where we'll be...I may have to put antiperspirant on my entire body like lotion, so I don't melt!
Anyways, I hope everyone here has a great weekend, with as little pain as possible. I say a prayer over this whole forum every night and every morning...so I really hope everyone is doing as well as possible.
