Vickie, I have never healed up well from anything...I had two blood patches after a spinal tap in 1013, needed 3 eye surgies on one eye to remove a boil that kept coming back in 2006, I've had a tonsilectomy and still tested positive for strep 5 times after that, ended up needing sinsus drained...I just have bad luck, I guess...I have started weaning off the duiladed (sp?) was only taking it at night. Still in pain and still sore and stiff and I'm doing my therapy at home exercises and I do the exercise bike as well it's a recumbent bike. I have actual lost weight! geezee...My knee was so swollen a week after this surgery they did a tests for DVT, I'm almost to the give up point and the only answers I get from medical professionals is: "oh, your just a slow healer" do you know how many times I hear that and want to yell back at them I know...
PT usually helps me better to heal but when they started the ultra sound therapy I literally jumped up and it set me back on everything, I had my knee Stretching to 147 before the ultrasound therapy and afterwards it's now 139, so I lost ground with that...I have a small hot tub that helps but then it stiffens up again even worse after the hot tub...Sorry, sorry about the rant, if I knew why, I'd gladly tell you...sorry...Just once I would love to be in that group that can jump up after surgery and say hooray!
I was hoping to be in that group, I was wishing...and right now they can't say that I have RA because all my recent tests say no to RA...only 1 mri in 2009 said I had RA all the recent one don't say anything...so back to square one all over again.
Anyways I do have an appointment this Saturday at "Bridal"s by Debbie" to find a Mother of the Bride Dress, so yeah on that...Fingers crossed I find something blue as I have a blue sapphire necklace to match it to...(got the necklace on sale)
