Thanks everyone for your prayers and well wishes. I'm sorry I've not been posting and updating you a lot. I have to say that the pain of a fractured hip/pelvis is NO FUN AT ALL. I truly believe I'm not healing at all so far. We aren't sure of exactly when I fractured the hip/pelvis but I'm guessing somewhere around the 16th of Feb.
A normal person (NO COMMENTS PLEASE
) would heal in 6-8 weeks. However, I'm not in the "NORMAL" population. They said I could take longer to heal. Well, it's been 6 weeks, working on 7 and my pain hasn't lessened at all. I'm also feeling a popping sound and hear it when I do move. I've sent a message off the to orthopedic surgeon and he has 72 hours to respond to my request. Hopefully, he'll respond sooner rather than later.
My viral pneumonia is almost gone. I'm still wheezing a lot though, I'll be seeing my pulmonary Dr in another 3 weeks. She added 2 more inhaler and ordered a machine do to breathing treatments for at home. Still haven't seen my dermatologist yet, so I've not started my new medication for the vasculititis. My skin is covered in the stuff and I can only imagine what it looks like on the inside on my organs.
I see the vascular surgeons on the 21st of April and my Rheumy on the 27th. I will meet my new PCM on the 7th of April kinda worried about
the meeting. I mean my old PCM and I were together for over 9 years and now I need to start all over again with this one. I know my old PCM was really worried about
my relationship with my Rheumy (we don't get along the best) and she was the go between the two of us. I told her to go on to her new duty assignment and I'll be just fine with my Rheumy and she just needs to enjoy the south pacific and sunshine.
Well, I need to get to bed. I just wanted to say thanks for all of the support you're giving me. I hope that you are all doing better. I'll be posting more when I can sit in a chair longer. Take care and thank you so much for your loving support.
