Amanda- Good to hear from you and glad you are doing so well!!!! You son and my husband have the same birthday!!! Koodos on all the "normalcy" you can start bringing back into your life. I hope this continues to go in the right direction and over the next months you will heal and begin to enjoy this new life and forget about the past and all your complications.
I tried to get into U of M earlier than March 30, but I had no luck and they do not have a cancellation list. Oh well....about 8 weeks I guess. Still have not heard anything back from my surgeon on his consults, but it has been only a week today. I am sure it takes longer than that.
Thanks for the suggestions for sleeping. I actually slept last night....i think my exhaustion caught up with me. I slep in till 10 am and it felt so good. I have nothing to do today except study for grad school entrance exam so I think i will take a pill and try and nap a little and enjoy my day of nothing.
Hodaya.....There is a huge part of me that would look into the reflexology, but it is so hard to be positive on simple corrections when nothing has worked so far. I know its a bad attitude, but all of the work I have put into therapy and exercises, etc has given me nothing but disappointment. I am super super constipated right now. I have been having right lower abd pain and righ back pain for 2 days. All i have been doing is laying on a heating pad and ibuprofen will not touch the pain. I was tempted to call the doctor, but i will wait.
Hope you all are well.
