IV of C, Massage, & Acupressure; Oh My!

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

emoticonGood Day Everybody!

Back-Story (“Cliff Notes” for 6 years, I could write a novel) …

I had a Root Canal extracted, in ’05; the surgeon “left stuff behind”.
It wreaked havoc on my body and still, somewhat, is … to this day.
The, amazing, human body was able to heal “to a certain point” over the years; but, I have to get the stuff out of there, if I want to heal my body the rest of the way.
There are no pills, or whatever, “surgery to fix surgery” is the answer.

In September I found this out with absolute certainty; scientific fact.
However, I knew it, in my: heart, mind, and soul, for all of these years; from about 2 weeks after the surgery, in ’05, that something was majorly wrong. The list of Severe Symptoms (incontinence, rashes) I was experiencing, for months, was running 19 long.
Now it’s 4-ish.

You guys have no idea how much I’m kicking myself for believing (and staying loyal to) my Dentist telling me, “Oh, there’s no way ‘it’s’ connected.”

Have you ever trusted a Doctor and then later regretted it?

… finally … fruition … six ‘n’ a half long years later …

After over a month of appointments and phone consultations I found an Oral Surgeon, and scheduled surgery, on 11.7.11.
3 Dentists weren’t interested in, “cleaning up someone else’s mess.”
3 Dentists were; but, I wasn’t feeling them.
(When I was interviewing them, deciding whether to hire them or not, they didn't answer one, or more, of my medical questions right.)

The seventh one was a charm; it was worth all of the searching.
The Dr. and Staff are a perfect fit for my philosophies and otherwise.

… 12.5.11 …

I’m a little nervous. The Doctor called me at 1:00 and the Anesthesiologist called me at 7:00 to see how I was feeling.
I really appreciated hearing from them both.

… 12.6.11 …

(They’ve had me on several supplements since 11.7.11.)

We have to wake up around 3:00AM to get to Surgery by 5:45.
(The Practice is 2 hours away.)
They are doing:
Lymphatic Massage; Acupressure; Intravenous Vitamins; Surgery

They have On-Site Compounding.

… Sidebar …
I am also getting DNA analysis done.
(It takes the Laboratory a while to get to it.)
I am chomping at the bit to see the results!!!!
I’ll probably Blog about the DNA results?

Afterwards, we’re checking into one of, the five, very close hotels.
(DH is getting a room squared away, while I’m getting worked on.)
The Surgeon gave me his cell phone number; so, lock and load.

… 12.7.11 …

We check out of the hotel; I am scheduled, at a facility, for:
Another, 3 hours of an, Intravenous Vitamin Drip
An Exam for “clearance” to go into a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber
Hopefully, go into a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, for 90 minutes

Assuming that I get “clearance”, I hope to schedule additional Dives.
I would love to purchase one of their “packages”.
(They told me that the Dr. that I am going to meet at the Hyperbaric facility is a “mad scientist”, like the guy off of “Back To The Future”. I know that I am going to love him.)

For a couple weeks, I can’t:
Crunch food; bend at the waist; lift anything; raise my heart rate

I am so ready to kick 6+ years of “health limbo” to the curb!
I want Pre-2005 Diana back … bad.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
I will “Current Status” when I get to the hotel, via the:
Up To The Minute Live Breaking News Friend Feed

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my Blog.
It is a pleasure and an honor to share with you.
I hope that you’re doing awesome in all of your awesomeness.

    May I ask how much this queen for a day cost in over all outlay? This is a serious question. I am delighted to get a story of true good recovery after dental abuse and industry liars. My mouth has haunted me and the bull is too common for my good health.

    Wow, that's quite a story, Diana!! Scares me, because I've had several root canals. I'm so glad that you found a good doc to take care of the "mess" the other one left, and sounds like he was a good one. All that extra stuff sounds great; those lymphatic massages can do a world of good! Take care & get well! emoticon

    Good Luck, Best Wishes and you are not alone. Most of us are still kicking ourselves for not listening! I have to remind myself that they are called Practicing Doctors. Even tho they would like us to believe they know it all and some are extremely pompous about it. We really know our bodies best. It is finding one that actually listens and is able to humble themselves..... I found mine in a chiropractor years ago.... emoticon

    wow! sounds like something that happens all to often, you know your body better than anyone and for many Dr's, they know this, I knew I needed a histerectomy and got pushed aside a lot but finally got it done, I hope all goes well for you and rhis will soon be behind you and a wonderful turning point from what you have experienced for so long
