Thank you for everything!
Just a quick note to say hi!
I've taken that too for other injuries but you have to take in large, large quantities to be effective. I had lots of work to rub out thin out scar tissue on the back incisions but it wasn't possible when they did the fusion since they did an anterior approach. My acupuncturist was giving me some topical stuff...I have it at home and could give you the name of it if you are interested.
I've lost weight and need to loose more and am walking as much as I can which my pm doc says will help me best right now. If I could get the RA and he new herniations under control I think I would be able to tolerate the rest of it better.
Still have to have kidney surgery with another doc at another hospital. Ugh. I'm getting OLD!!
ive had this fusion 8 yrs now and it's done me no good. I was told it would take away the pain I was having when the second surgery failed. Don't fall for that!! I hope that your at a stage that your back will remain to be ok. If I can help in any way pleas let me know. I've dealt with this back stuff for over 10 yrs now.
Wishing you the best!
i have new 2 herniations above my fusion. I had 3 surgeries in less then 3 yrs, last one being a multi level fusion. Today L3-L4 was injected because it's worse then the one above. I actually feel worse now. Cortisone injections have helped tremendously in the past in other body parts but never in my back. My PM says it's still too soon after J's birth to re do my labs. I'ts believed that I have RA as well. Feeling not so great these days... Sorry to vent this all to you.
So glad to hear you've managed to find a way to deal with your back pain a little better. Do you have neuropathy as well? Sometimes I think the neuropathy is worse then back pain!
I'm praying J will be just fine but it's such a huge worry. He still has very short legs. He's got the best personality.
You deserve a big bear hug!
That's great to hear your good!
J has to go for testing at Children's Hosp. I'm worried. He may very well have
what the peri thought in utero. Getting my LESI injection this morning. Hope it helps
bc I am refusing to have a 4th surgical repair to my back.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
You deserve a big bear hug!
Thank you for your kindness
How are you managing? Ok I hope?
I'm far enough from the coast that storm surges won't affect me. The storm is up along the GA/SC coast now and hopefully, will go back out to sea, soon, where it looks like it will dissipate over the next few days.
Thank you, Dee... I appreciate it. I'm still here, but could go off any time. ☺
What a drag, Dee, ugh is right. How much more dental work do you have to endure? I see my surgeon today about this hernia thing. I don't want to deal with it but I HAVE NO CHOICE. lol Love and hugs...♥
Thanks for welcoming me back. It seems as though it has been an eternity this time since I was able to be on here.
ty for everything my fairy princess!!!!! hope you are ok. love, Meegy
You deserve a big bear hug! I hope you're feeling better today, Dee. And btw, I've been meaning to tell you, I took your advice and covered my recliner with a sheet. MUCH cooler, thank you! ♥
You poor thing! I saw your posts on that TMD blog. I have severe TMD also. Several yrs ago, I fell on my tailbone while pulling our recliner away from the wall. The left side of my neck and jaw went instantly numb. I take a lot of meds though, and didn't feel as much pain as I normally would have. Now my lower jaw wants to sit too far back making my bite off more than ever. My entire face and head is sore all the time. Can't wear a headband, my glasses (my vision is very poor and only use them when I absolutely have to), or wear my hair up as it pulls on my scalp causing even more pain. I, too, have a lot of crowns and will imagine they will begin to fail soon. I even have to eat standing up so my jaw is a little more in a normal place. I feel for you, Dee. Love and big hug! ♥
Hey Dee! Did you have dental work today or something? I hope all is well with you, honey! xo
Thank you for everything! im doing a little better .... xxoo Meegy
Any time; we aim to please... ☺ Have a great day!!
Thank you for everything Dee.
Your kind comments are so appreciated.
I am so happy and proud of my daughter.
My family means the world to me. I am a blessed woman.
Have a good night.
Laughter - the best medicine... :-)
We "do" have electricity, as does everyone else in my area... Thanks for the thoughts... :-)
Hi Dee...I'm sorry I haven't replied to your PM yet. Something happened between R and I (or is it "me and R"? I used to be so good at that sort of thing) yesterday. I am just beside myself, I feel so hurt and betrayed. I barely slept last night. I wrote a journal about it, but kept it on private. I may or may not share it. In the grand scheme of things, it's probably dumb. So much stress lately, I'm more sensitive than usual. I'll get back to you when I feel better, k? I am sending this note so you don't worry. I'm going to kick back and blare my music this afternoon (the louder the better, then I don't have to think) and try to calm down. I hope today is a good one for you and you're feeling well. Talk soon sweetheart. Much love. xo
Thanks for the kind comment on my post. I hope you have a terrific day!
Thank you for everything! Dee you are so precious. Tysm for all of your support and love. You are very kind and good to me and I appreciate you!!!! lovelove--Meegy
You deserve a big bear hug! I certainly second what Sara said on the SA forum. I am so happy we're friends. You are a sweetheart, Dee. So kind and helpful. Thank you so much for all your support! Love you honey. Hope you're feeling good and your day is going well. Oh, I saw you had to go to the dentist. Ugh, right? HUGS ♥
where are you? how are you feeling? hey i lost that link you gave me to the old site. do you have it? sending hugs! xx Meegy
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. I hope you're okay, Dee. Suddenly you disappeared! I miss you!! Much love~ ♥
You deserve a big bear hug!
Mostly dropping by to say hello & thank you for your positivity and support.
I had that CT. It wasn't the news I wanted to hear. Will be having surgery soon
and more chance then not another surgery to remove my kidney.
PPD, PTSD, fused spine and RA aren't enough I guess. At least I've got my
family now. I am blessed in so many other ways.
Hope you are well and having a wonderful week. Thank you for being my friend.
Thinking of you, Dee. I hope you're feeling stronger. Love and hugs...♥
Hope you feel better soon! hope you are doing ok Dee--xx Meegy
Hey Dee, I hope you're feeling better today. When you're up to it, I've got a question. I'm trying to use the code to get back to the old format. I both copied and pasted as well as manually typed it in, but it doesn't work. Have you used this yourself and it worked? What am I doing wrong? Thanks honey, no rush. xo
Hope you feel better soon! I see you have the flu. Please take good care of yourself, Dee. Sending love and healing hugs. xo
Checking in, Dee! :) Hope you got my return email. Thank you for caring so much...and thank you for all your support and help! I'll be in and out here. I'm not in so much pain limiting my comp time. I hope you're doing okay, honey. Hugs xo
Thank you for everything! ty for all your support and interest, Dee. its great to have you as a friend! --Meegy
