ASKING FOR PRAYERS, ADVICE...

Jan 21, 2010 - 14 comments

HI EVERYONE!
HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING GOOD, I HAVEN'T BEEN ON HERE FOR A FEW DAYS.
I WENT TO MY SURGEON IN JACKSON LAST THURSDAY. I TOLD HIM I STILL HAVE QUITE A BIT OF SWELLING IN THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY NECK. HE DID AN ULTRASOUND, AND I HAVE ANOTHER LYMPH NODE. HE FINALLY GOT BACK TO ME YESTERDAY, AND SAID IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, THAT WE WILL WATCH IT FOR TWO MONTHS, THEN I WILL GO BACK IN MARCH. I'M NOT TOO WORRIED ABOUT THAT; GOD IS IN CONTROL, RIGHT?
ANYWAY, I WENT TO MY FAMILY DR. TUESDAY, ABOUT THE PAIN IN MY RIGHT SHOULDER/ARM, THAT I'VE HAD FOR ABOUT 2 MONTHS NOW. HE DID ONE BLOOD TEST FOR URIC ACID, SINCE I JUST FINISHED CHEMO/RADIATION IN OCT., AND ONE FOR ARTHRITIS. THE URIC ACID ONE CAME BACK NEGATIVE, THE ARHTRITIS ONE POSITIVE. HE WANTS ME TO TAKE MOBIC. I REMINDED HIS NURSE THAT I AM ALLERGIC TO SOME NSAIDS. ALLEVE, EC NAPROSYN, ETC., MAKE MY HEARTBEAT AND BP GO CRAZY. I CAN TAKE IBUPROFEN, MOTRIN...NURSE TOLD ME TO TRY THE MOBIC, AND IF I HAVE ANY PROBLEMS, TO LET THEM KNOW. I REALLY DON'T WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE ON IT RAISING MY BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART RATE; BESIDES, I DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR A MED I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE (AND SHE SAID THEY DON'T HAVE ANY SAMPLES). SO I'VE PRETTY MUCH DECIDED NOT TO TRY IT; BUT, IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS, MAYBE SOME NATURAL OR HOME REMEDIES, OR EXERCISES I MIGHT TRY, I'D APPRECIATE IT...AND YOUR PRAYERS, TOO, FOR THE ARTHRITIS, AND THE LYMPH NODE.
                                                                                                       HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
                                                                                                       BEVERLY : )

There's a spice named "Turmeric" that has some wonderful anti-inflammatory properties You might want to google it =0)

Do you have motrin or advil?   I have a little guy with down syndrome and he is a real prayer warrior. We are all over you little sister. God you know our every need. Bless this sister with strength , peace and a supernatural speedy healing. That she may bear witness to your love and mercy. In Jesus precious name.  
The big guns are sleeping now. He will pray with his cousins tommrow. They(cousins) are all under 8 years old. YOU KNOW God hears thier prayers. I know he does mine too, but when they join I can feel the HOLY SPIRIT phsyically. Amazing grace

Licorice root is good for arthritics.  Just be careful if you have high blood pressure.  Also it has stomach soothing qualities & an energy boost.  Don't take it after about 3 in the afternoon or you might have trouble sleeping.  I encourage you to look it up, It has helped a lot of people I know.  
Prayer always, Sunshine

I dont know about herbals for this..but would like to discuss Dr's with you...remember you are the "Boss" the Dr is your employee...If you do not like him or get bad vibes..( ihave them just from reading your post..on the Dr)   I have worked in health...Never Ever ask a patient to try a med they are allergic to...and to ask you that when your body is already stressed is beyond reason..Please get another opinion..


hugs

THANKS, EVERYONE!
JIMI, I'VE READ THAT "TURMERIC" IS ONE OF THE SPICES IN DILL PICKLES...I LOVE PICKLES! THEY'RE THE FIRST THING I COULD ACTUALLY TASTE AFTER FINISHING UP MY RADIATION!
I'VE STARTED TAKING IBUPROFEN FOR THE SHOULDER PAIN. IT DOES HELP A LOT...MAYBE IT'S ALL I'LL NEED! (BESIDES THE PRAYERS, OF COURSE!)
I DO HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, SUNSHINE, SO I GUESS THE LICORICE ROOT'S OUT. BUT THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS...
CHERIE, I JUST CHANGED DRS. ( AND HOSPITALS) FOR THAT REASON. DR. SCOTT DOES SEEM MORE UNDERSTANDING THAN MY OLD DR. DID; HE ALWAYS ACTED MAD IF I SAID I DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE SOMETHING. IT WAS ACTUALLY THE NURSE THAT MADE THE SUGGESTION THAT I TRY IT. SHE SAID SOME NSAIDS ARE DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS, WHICH I ALREADY KNOW, SINCE I CAN'T TAKE ALEVE, EC NAPROSYN, ETC., BUT I CAN TAKE IBUPROFEN, ADVIL, MOTRIN, WITH NO PROBLEM.
BUT I WILL KEEP WHAT YOU SAID IN MIND; IT'S NOT WRITTEN IN STONE YET THAT I WILL KEEP HIM AS A DR.
                                                                                                                           GOD BLESS,
                                                                                                                           BEVERLY : )

I wish I could offer some help but I really don't know of any natural remedies or anything. I've always been interested in all of that though. One of these days I'm going to study up on that more.

I can pray for you though! I know there's power in prayer. I've seen in enough in my own life and my families. I don't know how I would have made it as far as I have without the Lord. I really don't. He holds me together! God bless, hope you feel better soon!
