Monday evening I went out on a Dragon Boat team in Portland. It was the first time in over a year I ahve really paddled with a team. I really enjoyed it. I did pretty good considering. My upper body had been aching today. Muscles in arms. I'm proud of what I did. I plan to go back next week Monday.
today I ahd Physical therapy. I go once a week on tuesday Mornings. this is to help me deal with my balance issues. I am being prescribed a cane to use when walking. Hold onto Leone's ahrness with left hand and a cane in the right hand. These balance problems really started acting up after i had my cochlear Implant surgery.
I ws prescribed a cream called Litocaine. (5 boxes of it) For when i go in the hospital Wed, thurs and Friday for my IVIG treatments I can rub it on the area before getting stuck. It's to help ease the pain.
I'm getting really tempted to request a Port in my chest to help with the treatments. Both my regular Dr. and my Neurologist ahve talked to me about it because the treatments are helping my symptoms.
Have a great day!
