So sorry I have not gotten back to this post. Thanks for writing to me and for the support for my daughter. MY life has been so busy taking care of Jamie's little boy, and then had another family emergency while all this was going on.
Jamie is out of the hospital. She spent 6 days in there. She was given DHE infusions every 8 hours for several days. She was also given Depacoate and a betablocker,and was gradually taken down off of morphine to a lower dose of pain killer and left the hospital on Medrin along with the betablocker. Hard to remember it all. It all seems like a dream but she did get pain free while she was in there. She said she thought it was while she was getting the DHE but they only lasted 2 days because her veins kept collapsing and she didn't want to have a central line put in. ( I think it means running it through her heart.
She was so grateful to be out of pain and a few days after she got home they started back again, but not nearly as bad. They sent her home on the Beta Blocker and medrin and one that she was on when she went into the hospital??
We went to her neuro today and .. He was quite different from the last time we saw him. Said.. "I see that the nerve block didn't work." DUH!! HE took lots of time with her today. Told her that the hospital report said that she was supposed to be released on Depacoate . from what the notes said, but wasn't, so he put her back on it along with the Beta Blocker and a nasel spray DHE. He told her that he could have put her in the hospital and given her those treatments. I just about lost it. I told him that we called his office and asked them if he would possibly admit her because she was in so much pain, and they said he doesn't admit ppl to the hospital for migraines. Go Figure??? IT was after that that we went to another ER on the other side of town that he wasn't affiliated with. And the rest is history. They got her in. I would have taken up residence in the waiting room if they hadn't and would have been really nasty.. LOL.. she had been way too sick. She said her whole body hurt from head to toe.
So tonight we are hopeful and prayerful. She has used the spray, taken the depocoate and is putting her little one down for the night. OH, he took her off the Medrin, said it would cause rebound. That's
What a pain this has all been.. lol.. gotta laugh or I will cry.
I so hope that the other ones that have posted get some relief from their suffering. I will keep you all in my
prayers and thoughts and will continue to write and you all do too.
