Friday bit better

Friday, August 10, 2012

Good morning all.
Thanks for all the well wishes etc. I am doing a bit better, able to sit for few mins adn stand longer. Still a lot of pain but probably the meds are helping. I want them to help but I also wanted the dr to see me as is now so he can comment on that etc. but the physio I saw yseterday, is at the apt with me on the 17th so she will be able to explain it all.
Pain in the hip is still bad, and my lower calf and ankle area are the worse. She also wasnt sure but thinks it is 2 diff issues.
Today we are going to get some veggies and fruit, we went and got groceries yesterdy while I was not bad. Don't know that I will go to the legion.

Been reading and resting and such, am down to 182.7 which is great but sure once I start moving and eating more will go up a bit, mabye not if I am careful.

Marlo is eating less and starting to not want the egg, rice and beef that we made. She is hungier in he eve so that is fine. Time is coming for sure, I an see a diff hubby not as much which is diff.

Truck is still in garage, but great news. I will tell everyone that Valley Volkswagon service dept is great! finally the waranty came back saying what they will cover. So then Mur had to call valley v. and tell them what was covered. we expected a we will pay part you pay rest. They will pay ALL that ithe warranty doesn't. so we have to pay the deductible and if this other part needs repair then we have to pay part of that. so from 3,000 to 300. Thank heavens.

Not sure I will go to legion this eve, maybe mur and dad and lisa if she is going. Will see how I am later in eve is my worst time now.

oaky gotta go have so many emails..........

love you guys thanks for putting u with my whinny ways again. but still be sticking to eating well but ex. has been none, could have done weights but pain was so bad just had to lay and sleep.
Cya

Thanks

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Thanks every one for the good thoughts , prayers and ideas. I am hoping to get into my dr so he can refer me for more tests - new ct scan and mri. For the Cdns that answer they know it can b e a very very long wait. I waited over 6 months for ct scan. Now not sure if dr can put rush or not. But first I have to get in to my dr, Hubby has apt on monday and we are hoping that when he mentions me, dr will tell the sec. to get me in. If not I have an apt sept 25.
I do go see the physio tonight, at a diff place that may get me in faster... so not sure what she can do, I am going to physio and there will be no diff otther than me having to pay out of pocket.
hubby is on phone now about trruck which won't be done till after tues. 3,000 out of our pocket so far. hoping place we bought it helps warranty isn't covering that area.
So not a great august so far but at least we are still doing okay relatively.
Gotta go sit now as that is enough in one position ,much better than yesterday but still not good.
oh so sore and tight cya

    That is way too long to have to wait in pain. We have pain clinics here that really help.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that you can get seen sooner due to another patient cancelling Cinders.......that's how it works over here any road

thursday hoping this med will work without side effects

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Went to the duty dr yesterday, and he said he really didn't know what to do, nerve pain is treated with gabapentin meds, which lyrica is one of, that is the same drug I took last summer that made me sleep all the timeand my eyes bug out and dry out. so will see maybe this one won't be the same to me.
OKAY big yell pain........... hubby set myputer up in living room but the couch is useless even to lay and watch tv, the chair I can handle for about 5 mins moving every 2 secs.
the pain is in my butt for bit, then hip and then mostly lower calf and front of foot where it attaches to leg. wicked pain . any ideas on nerve pain let me know. I can't even stretch rigth cos it hurts so bad. Hubby goes see our dr on monday so hoping he will be able to get ime in on wed afternoon.... I am going to see if he will give me ativan or something silmilar to take before I ask for acupuncture. I have to be desperate but omg neeed something
Marlo is not eating anything unless we give her egg. She is still eating milkbone treats but won't eat her hard food, or wet either. this am was first day she was at the bottom of stairs and cried for me to come down let her out. time is coming for sure.
I have been doing deep breathing through the pain, he laughed said look like you are preg. laying on the bed, with 4 pillows under your knees, and breathing panting scream, breath... lol
hoping this meds works, and I can start walking a bit, can't even make it from the kitchen to living room without hanging on to something. many times I remind myself of mum. I even found myself making the same noise when the pain is starting. oh i mss her now.
anyway off I go have over 100 emails will check a bit at a time. right now am in chair with leg bent up and no pain strange as this is a weird way to sit.
hugs and thanks for all the prayers, thoughts, wishes replies. I haven't been on other than to put my status and small blog.
hugs all!!!

    I had sciatica issues a couple of years ago. So bad that nothing helped and was on 2400 mg of Ibuprofen a day to reduce the swelling. What worked for me was actually sitting on something hard. I use to sit on a ball at home on the computer and a piece of plywood with a small amount of batting on it at work and it really did help.

I also saw my chiropractor to help with it too.

But I have to agree with Carole, get an MRI done to rule out anything major. Living like that SUCKS!!!!!

    nerve pain, mmm sorry I just have to grin & bear it, sometimes epsom salt baths helps other than that am not sure I just work through it, not much advice when you are in so much pain

    Oh, girl...you need to get an MRI done on your back. You are describing the symptoms my daughter has had with her 3 herniated discs. SAME PLACES and YES..."wicked pain."

I feel so badly for Marlo. Man that is so tough on all of you.

Rest up and do consider getting that MRI done. You shouldn't have to keep living with this level of pain and relying on med (more "wicked," I say!)

Wednesday still cant move

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

HI short agani today, just up and pain in my calf is so bad I nearly fall. I just called my dr and she said SIGH cindy he has nothing. I said well I can't do anything and extreme pain I was hoping he had a cancellation or anything can I make apt with duty dr, yea over at othr clinic again this eve. But if you go to physio next door, she can assess and get you in with him sooner than Oct. I aid I have an apt end sept. OMG If he wasn't so thorough when you see him and close to the house, I would try to find another dr.
So I will go to duty dr over there tonight, go to physio with his affiliated place tomorrow and then mayeb get to see him sooner. If not and this continues I will have to resort to sitting at emerg for half a day at least.
not al lot more new, marlo is eating less but otherwise seems to them same.
okay ogtta go hurting bad now

    Uh oh, not good, not good. Hope you can get in soon and that the physio can help you out. Have you tried some stretches? The hamstring stretch might help. I find my ham and my butt are really tight after I go running and this helps tons. Hang tight!!!
