35 down, 4 to go, that is the good news. Will be done a week from today, on the Friday after American Thanksgiving Day.
Woke up with a lot of burning penis pain and rectal pain in the middle of the night. Another night with little sleep. Theses treatments can't end fast enough for me.
Today's session was a 35 minute one. When they pulled the little self-adhesive sticker things off of me (used on top of the tattoos for alignment) they burned and hurt, my skin was that tender to the touch. And the usual burning pain at the SP exit.
Had trouble walking without pain while I was dressing, and then had a huge painful spasm attack in the men's room before leaving.
So thankful its the weekend, I can't honestly take much more of this. I know its only 4, but the cumulative effect on me is rising by the day.
Back home now ,but any movements at all causes another spasm, waiting for some meds to kick in.
