I saw my PM again today - partly my normal pump refill, partly as a follow-up to my cellulitis and the CRPS flare in my arm. The flare has been getting worse and the CRPS has now spread through my shoulder and upper right chest. Ketamine makes me awfully sick, but I asked him if we could try another infusion to try to stop and maybe reverse the upper body involvement. He's happy to go with it, so I'm going back into hospital yet again this coming Tuesday for another ketamine infusion.
