Really sore today.. :(

Monday, July 01, 2013

Well last monday I found a bump on the lower part of my left leg. It didnt worry me to much but I did go in search for insurance my fiance and I are kind of on a fixed budget and my work does not offer insurance. Well thursday and friday I had off from work. Thusday was great I got alot done that I had been neglecting. Friday morning was the worse I woke up in pain and it was right were the bump is. Two years ago I had a blood clot in the same leg behind my knee it was so bad that it had ran into my lungs. Drs could not understand how i was still alive and alert when i got to the hospital with it. Well this pain i got on friday scared me. I started to have trouble breathing. My fiance who is a retired fire fighter/ paramatic rushed me to the er. I was there for about two hours. After running blood work; chest x-rays and a ultra sound they told me i was having trouble breathing from the fear and pain. But the bump and the pain i was having is a enlarged varaclose vain. It can cause alot of swelling and pain the dr told me to take it easy for a few days as far as exercise and keep up the good work on changing my eating habits. So i went to the store bought some panty hose with support to them as i was instructed by the dr for when im going to do alot of sitting and standing. And i got a heating pad. I came home and got in bed and elevated my leg as i was also instructed and i slept all night from the med they gave me in the hospital and saturday and sunday i took days of rest i kept with in my eating habits and at times i didnt eat at all so i knew i was under on my counts i didnt respond to email or texts cause i was in pain. This morning i felt good enough to go to work. I did alot of walking at work but when i got home i imedatly got on my heating pad. So now my leg is swollen again and in very much pain all i can take is over the counter anti inflamation meds for it. But im trying to keep with in good spirts and keep in contact with my partners on here cause i dont want to give up on the fight. This will not keep me down im stronger then this and i tell my self we can do this together. And i strongly believe it...

    Don't feel down because of the lack of ability to exercise, I was sick for 3 weeks! I've read it's best to eat and rest when sick, and now to over-do it.. I didn't exercise at all D= but it's what my body needed it. The loss now shows, and hopefully it does for you too during the break.

    Seriously hope that you feel better! I haven't heard from you in a while...

    Sorry to hear about your leg and your pain. Be sure to take it easy these first few days so you don't make it worse by being on it for to long. Wishing you well and hoping it gets better soon. My thoughts are with you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
