Havent been around in ages
, just trying to take care of myself the best I can. I have lost a ton of weight, hovering around 116-120, this has helped my joints tremendously. Not to mention getting me off of BP meds, cholesterol and that dreaded CPAP machine. Didnt do a thing for my backpain, which wasnt a surprise with all the damage. I have been able to increase activity, which has increased pain, but I really dont care. I have done several 5K's, Zumba, Cardio Kickboxing as well as running.
I do feel pretty good in general. With everything else gone I have been able to handle the chronic pain much much better. Great news is that I havent fallen since October! Bad news is that my reflexes have gotten worse and sometimes I quickly lose coordination in my legs, when that happens I need to abruptly stop whatever I am doing, sometimes not very gracefully. Bowel, bladder and perineal issues are still a problem, but we keep that in check pretty well. The RSD is a bugger, good weeks and bad weeks, that I try and ignore, but its time for my SCS to be done. Its scheduled for the 18th of this month and I am getting a bit freaked about
the actual surgery, but I will get over that once the meds start flowing in the IV,lol.
I hope everyone is doing the best they can and I want to send out hugs to everyone that is struggling. I am hoping that during my recovery I can get myself on the computer and visit more often.
