One week later

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

So, it's been a week since I've seen the doctor. I'm happy to report that the ulcer med seems to be helping. I'm starting to feel better there...still have a ways to go, but don't feel as rotten.

I also feel much better with the rib strain. I've had two 90-minute massages in the last week, concentrating on the rib cage, and a lot of the muscles have finally let go. I can function again. I'm still using the topical NSAID, but only at night, and only after I've iced. I'd say that's progress.

I have to call the doctor and have her call in a script for the ulcer med (she gave me two weeks of samples)...I'll be on this medication for at least a month, maybe two. I have hope that I can enjoy our upcoming cruise vacation. :)
