Bone spur

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Well I went to the foot dr yesterday and he sent me for a X-Ray. And I go back next week to see how it looks.

Then we talk about what to do.

He said that he can have a in sole made for my shoe cause my shoe might be rubbing my heel.

I don't think that' the issue. But I'm welling to try .

Then there's therapy?? If it's not too bad.

And the one we talked about.. Surgery.

I would be in a cast for 3 weeks , then a walking boot , then therapy. He said it would be about 9-12 months of healing.

But since I've had 3 back surgeries that's not too bad .. Not saying I 'm all , Let's do it now but I don't see what else will help.

It' s got to the point that my knee is hurting too!!! So I really feel that I might have a problem with my knee if I don't do something..

In the past I did go to a knee dr and he told me that my knee's aren't too good. I don't have alot of tissue .

Well that's my spur story.


He gave me some med's to help with the swelling cause ice didn't do much iv'e tried it and heat.

Soaking it helps some but I can;t leave my foot in the water all the time unfortually, lol

Thanks for reading

    Been there, got those, no fun! I decided to change to SAS shoes for work, and took Naprosyn and Soma for several months as well as getting cortisone injections in my feet. My pain finally relented without surgery although I have an occasional flare. The spur in the right foot is worse than the left, accompanied by a Morton's Neuroma and bunionette over my little toe which I broke roller-skating in another lifetime. Hang in there, when your feet hurt, you hurt all over!

Went to band dr

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Well it's been a month since I've been there. And my goal was to loss 5lbs.
Well I lost 4.5lba yeh!!!! I'm very happy with that

I also this morning could get into my size 26 thin pants with a zipper.
So I'm really happy about that!

He said I'm right where I should be 4-6 lbs a month is my goal.
So I go back to him when I feel I don't have restiction or am eating too
much and eating between meals .

My daughter said basically when ur nit like this,lol
if I feel like I need to talk to him I can just call him.

So a good visit. All in all!!

So I'm at 338.5 now

Slow but surely..... Yeh!!!

I wasn't doing anything anyway but feeling bad about myself. Now i'm on my road to a stronger, healthier, less med's , and yeh better looking and feeling woman!!

Thanks for reading my dr visit day

  I didn't feel as if I was losing as much as I should be, but got the reassurance I need that 4-6lb a month is just right. Stories in the media would lead us to believe that as banders we should be dropping 10lb or more a month.

Seems like your doctor is as good as mine is.

Med's ---- cut down ( did I make it??)

Sunday, July 04, 2010

I did it!!!!!!!
About a week has gone by and ,

Norco, I cut in half , instead of 2 pills every 8 hrs , 1
( pain pill)

Muscle Relaxer
One half pill at nite , so I can sleep . Body won't relax without in... Tried.
But besides that No MR during the day
I used to take 1 every 6 hrs.
Gone , never again!!
I don't care what dr says what.... Never again

now I'm not sleeply all day , off and on....

Down fall
my legs have been hurting in different ways.
New pain to me , even thou it was probally always there, I feel it now.
My "good" leg has been tight and hurting at times.

But all in all --- my back hasn't been worst, yeh!
And it's things I can deal with!!!
I am determined to get off these pills
Next the cane!

I've heard people on Spark say that they cut down or r off their pills and I would always say " me someday, hopefully ???)
I can't believe it's me now!!!

Thanks for reading
and all the support

    I am so proud of you. Hopefully you'll be able to stretch out those tight muscles in your legs with exercises on your balance ball or in your therapy. You might ask your therapist, if htey know any good stretches for you.

I can't wait to meet you tomorrow.

Love, ur buddy Sam
