Orange,
If I understand it right, you are going to return to work Sept 4 and your boss wants you to be reevaluated every four weeks to give you a lighter lifting section of your job. I would have your doctor put in what he sees fit, even if it says to take four months. It doesn't sound as if your boss is saying no, but just to keep getting it reevaluated. This may not be as easy as he thinks since some doctors do not want to see you that often, but if your doctors note says two months, it says two months. Do not lift things if you shouldn't. You do not want to jeopardize your surgery. Hopefully it will all work out.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

I called my boss as September 4th I go in to see if I can lose the brace and return to work. He says we can take it month to month and I can give you one month then you can return to your doctor to see if you can lift. I lift mail,consumers,( are disabled folks), and do take downs as a last resort. Oh and push those heavy,battery powered, wheel chairs when they break down. But 2 other women who aren't even as high in position got 8 weeks with no second looks! My friend says he just has to say that and do it that way because then everyone would be asking for light duty. I remember when employers used to care about good workers. I have 19 years here!!!!! It made me feel like I wont be able to get 2 months of light duty and if he says no I either have to lift or leave work and I know it's my health and my back but if I don't have a job I lose medical and my home and so on. I understand it's hard for everyone with money and disability but it makes me want to scream the pregnant woman had no trouble and got to sit around and stare at folks for half a day she didn't even have extra paper work. I could be over reacting and probably am but I am a good faithful worker and even follow the dress code most of the people I work with just go to get a pay check and don't follow the rules. Well thanks for just letting me go on and on and on. I feel some what better now

My friend lives in a group home out here in N.Y. she cried when I said some day my doctor says I wont walk or work any longer, and I was shocked as her family life was horrible and she has never walked and has mental problems and her dream was to have a baby. She thought I didn't deserve that. And I was crying too as I have the dream she always wanted and i think I should be more grateful for all i have and we both realized at that moment we are who we are and no one's life is all perfect and things change every day. When i woke up this time from surgery they said don't move and I started to wiggle as i was scared that I wasn't going to walk again but I could feel my feet and lets say that was a scare and today I finally made 39 minutes of walking and I am sore and always will have pain but i am blessed to have so many people here and at work and in my life that really are GOOD PEOPLE. Thanks everyone can any one tell the week before my cycle ends I am very sappy.

Orange, glad to see you are stopping in. I appreciate all you have to say. People have always asked me why I haven't applied for disability. I never wanted to have to have the frustration of it all. Emotionally, I don't take stress very well. Luckily, my problems all started before age 18. I therefore qualified as an incapacitated minor. So I receive insurance through my Mom for bc/bs and through my Dad for Tricare. This amounts to a good coverage. The downside meant I could never get married and I am and always will be a dependent of my parents. My parents say they are very happy to have me living with them (off them). I may not experience dating, love,etc. but I know I will have healthcare of some sort at least until Mom were to die. The main key is that the amount of money she will have left me from her retired job has to pay the monthly fee for health care. I am not allowed to pay money for the difference. So, if and when insurance fees are to high that her monthly check won't cover it is when I will have to see about disability.


Hi Katy and Maga!

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

I get up at 4 am i dont exercise until i had 2 cups of coffee about 0430 lol I do feel better and stay on program better by working out in the morning. If I wait until the afternoon i always seem to talk myself out of it. LOL
I hope i never have to get disability. It sounds like a nightmare.

Orange, so sorry to hear about your mother, but I am glad she got the disability she needed. It takes a special person to take care of people. My doggies are even to lazy to get up at 4am LOL When i kick them out at 6 am my oldest dog which is 16 gives me the worse look ever, she is worse than getting a 6 yr old up for school, esp when she gets to go right back to bed LOOL

My mother in law has bipolar,( and i think a few extra personalities that her son and I seem to see,lol.) But she left work as her doctor said she needed disability full time forever. It took a year and she was denied and then she got a lawyer and about another 6 months goes by and she gets the disability and it retro active from first time she filed. My neurosurgeon says at some point I will probably need disability and wont be able to work and I cried and I said to him I understand by bones are falling apart and i am luckier than a lot of others who have worse pains or can't walk, I've been taking care of disabled folks for more than 19yrs., but I am crying because my husband's company charges so much for medical and dental and if it takes me a year or longer with a lawyer thrown in how will i keep my insurance and my home the mortgage company waits for no man! I hope you get your disability people should not have to deal with pain and stress and then not even get disability w/out a lawyers help. i am sure i can tell you of a few friends with 1 bulging disc that refused to get it fixed got a doctor and now are on disability and they weren't even denied the 1st time. The system sucks. I am getting carried away. And 4am for exercise you go girl. My only exercise at 4am is stumbling all sleepy to ladies room or to toss the dog out!

Maga, that is just horrible. I really wonder what these judges would do if they had the pain. Unfotunately, it often does seem that people only understand when the pain happens to them or their close ones. Otherwise, they think they are so strong and we are malingerers. But when something bad happens to them, they finally get it. But then they are in pain and not holding their job, so a new non believer takes their place. Just my thoughts.

I am the odd one out since you can exercise early as well.

Katy, you are doing great in finding how to even workout at work- very impressive! I could never, ever get up at 4am and do anything, never mind Zumba. I can't wake up before 5:45 at the absolute earliest and that is pure torture. You should definitely be into the pants you wrote about. I am sorry that I misinterpreted that you weren't exercising because you are definitely doing a lot. WTG!!!!!!!

Maga, I really hope that with an attorney, they will get you the disability. I was always under the impression that they almost always turn the individual down until they hire an attorney. Has your attorney said the smae thing that you think about them wanting your school records? I certainly do not know what your education level or grades has to do with needing disability do to physical problems. Is this still a long wait and see or do they have a timeline?

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Katy, you can, and will get back to exercising just to get into those pants. Are you settled into the job now? Do you still like it as far as one can like work?

Maga, have you found out if your going to get the assistance you need for medical and dental treatment?

I saw the surgeon's PA and he said I have bursitis in both hips. I even have scar tissue over the greater trochantor which makes the bursitis even more extreme and harder to treat. I had blind injections and I am trying Celebrex and Lidoderm for the hips. I also asked him to translate the fentanyl patches to all oxycontin since the patches were so hard on my skin. I go back in 4 weeks.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

I hope your dental work goes well! I have had so much pain but mouth pain is more than I can stand. I agree w/ you shots yuck. I would be squeezing the chair arms with my eyes closed even before they start. Good luck with your dental work. From the sounds of everyone it does not sound fun. I am glad you aren't going alone. Best of luck

Yes, shots into the palette are rotten. I though prefer the shots into any part of my mouth knowing it is coming than for them to hit a spot that isn't numb and junping. One time when they put on a crown they said they didn't need novacaine for that. They hit a spot, I jumped and the drill put a hole under my tounge the size of a half dollar. That was awful.They said they wouldn't stitch it because the mouth heals fast. But while waiting you can't eat or drink anything seeing how it goes into your body tissue and not down your throat. It did however heal as fast as they said, after a goodnights sleep.

Just remember the shots are a wayof hiding the pain. Tell them to inject quite slowly so that the overall injection isn't so painful

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

I know that a bridge is two crowns on either side of a missing tooth. The two crowns anchor the false tooth in between. It is as permanent as a crown is and restores your smile keeping the shape to your face. If my crowns are any example of pricing, the crowns wer $1530 for one needing a buildup and $1200+ for the other one. Then you would need to price the tooth in the middle. I would think you need to decide where the tooth that would be pulled is located and how you would feel without it to decide if it is worth it. Dental care is so expensive, but when we priced out insurance, the benefits they gave with the insurance basically amounted to self insuring for a cleaning and a few fillings in the year. Our out of pocket expenses would be equal to payong for the whole thing, it would just be that a part was paid upfront to insurance. Good luck on deciding. I hope I get a break for a while from further dental work. They are watching two more places for root canals- ugh!

Maga, my hips are still waking me up at night with the pain. I see my surgeon on Tuesday. I am just about back to were I was a month ago with the exception of my hips. This morning my walking was much worse due to the pain in the hips. I still don't know if this is new pain or if I just dropped too far down on my long actingpain meds which then have brought back the pain. I'll talk with the surgeon about this on Tuesday.

It is good you are both getting your exercises in with your spouse or without your spouse watching. Keep up the good work.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Maga, I have some marginal idea of what you are going through with your teeth. In the last month I have had a root canal (Katy, I only had two roots on tooth 15 when it also should have had three)and two crowns. They are watching two more teeth that are showing signs of requiring root canals. I don't want to give any more expense to dad. These three were $2500.

Katy it must take you all getting used to being home together. My guess is the good outweighs the bad. The hardest part is no alone time. That has been my hardest adjustment since my folks retired. But still the majority of the time, all is good.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Hey all, so far so good with the job and the hours. I am able to stay on program thru the week, the weekends are killers lol saturday is a freebie day and sunday is a day inbetween the two. Hubby just started working day shift as well, so we have a lot of adjusting to do, like sleeping in the bed at the same time and him not making fun of me doing zumba again before i knock him over the head with a skillet lol
So sorry to hear about your hip pain beach, I have been getting alot of knee pain but i am hitting about 5 + flights of stairs a day at work. I hope they can give you some good meds to knock out the pain but the only good ones seems to only make you sleep through it.
Maga, I am so sorry to hear about your teeth, that sounds so painful. my tooth i had a root canal on still hurts. it is supposed to be a 3 root toothe but they were only able to find 2 roots.

well off to chattanooga tomorrow for training have a great day all

Katy, you sound so good about your job. I am so happy that you are enjoying your job for a change. I am sure that having daytime hours must be making your approach to a healthy lifestyle much easier. I look forward to hearing about both aspects of your new life.

Maga, it was nice to see a picture of you,even without a closeup of your face. It makes it somewhat easier to get an idea of who my sparkfriends are.

Katy, I am still not up to where I was. Nighttime hip pain has returned pretty much full force. I am waking up with pain in both hips at around 6-7 levels. I am requiring more breakthrough meds which makes me fall asleep even during the day. My therapist started doing dry needling the other day. She is contacting my surgeon about getting shots around the greater trachantor. Meredith also agreed that I should stay longer, so I am now here in Vail until 5 October.

Take care all.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

The new job is going great. I have a lot to learn. But so far so good. I have a name plate and my own office, not even a cubicle. It is awesome. A bit overwhelming learning the codes for pay roll and changing the hours of peoples shifts. I have done payroll in the past but not with this software. lol
how are you all doing? you feeling any better Beach?
I still like your pic Maga.

I am sorry I haven't been on since my last post. It seems as if the new job is to your liking. Good for you sticking to your plan. Enjoy the Olive Garden.

As to your question of what did I do, I leaned forward to get something. I immediately had a take your breath awy pull. I thought it was my back just below my ribcage. I did not let myself sit down and allow my body to freeze. I actually thought when I went to bed on Saturday night that I had dodged a bullet. Yet during the night I was awoken with severe pain in my hips and the next morning my posture was back to where I started with my body balanced over bent knees. I went back to the walker. I saw Meredith on Monday and she said I pulled my psoas muscle. It will take a few weeks to get back to where we were at. I have needed more breakthrough meds, so I have been falling asleep early in the evening. I am seeing improvement with each pt session. Maybe by the end of next week. I was happy to have this happen here rather than to have gotten home and thought all the therapy was a waste. She said if it happens at home to just take it easy coming back. This is a little disappointing because I do not know if I will be back to any really active life again.

Hey Maga, new picture?

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Sorry to hear you still have an ongoing migraine. I bet eating can't hurt you, in fact I'd bet starving could make it harder to get well.

As for me, I had a big set back this weekend, basically to were I was when I started therapy. My therapist, Meredith, thinks and hopes that in two weeks I can be back on track. I do hope she is right.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Katy, I am glad to hear it was the day shift because otherwise it would be murder. I hope the migraine goes away. Is it related to stressor like my neighbor to your cycle? I have read about botox being used to help with migraines, have you tried this? I don't know if this use has been approved by the FDA yet but maybe it will help. I know my neighbor gets them a lot. I have only had one migraine and I had to go to bed due to the nausea. I instead usually get optical migraines. These don't last too long but the first time you really get freaked out about your vision.

Maga, are you still getting time to get to the pool both as a getaway from caregiving and to give yu the one oppurtunity to get rid of the pain? I surely hope you have been getting the relief.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Yes, Dayshift 7-330 with opportunity for overtime and advancement. I am so glad, thank you all so much. I hope you all had a great 4th of July. I had to work but it was easy money, oh yeah, I wont have to work Holidays anymore either and off on weekends unless we have an outage which means overtime. yayyyyyy so many plus's for this job i cant wait to start. I am trying my best to get back on track it is still going to be stressful starting a new job and all but not as stressful as losing one and looking at unemployment. I have been eating like crazy but at least i have been exercising every morning anyway.

Well they aren't connected but they are for the same company, just a different division. I had to accept the Chattanooga position or be job less. But they are letting me stay in Knoxville for a few weeks hoping I get good news from that other job I interviewed for. I should hear something one way or the other any day now. I am so stressed uuuuggghhhhhhh HELP

That is tough to have to tell your decision before knowing. Are these employments connected? Is there any chance they are waiting to see who accepts Cattanooga before deciding on who to hire or are these jobs unrelated? If you accept and get the job, will you just tell the current employer too bad. I think I hear the Jeopardy time song playing, do you hear it?
