Have to have Surgery on Monday

Friday, November 18, 2016

Because of my RA i get Rheumatoid Nodules in Aug. ( 4 days after I moved to Sacramento ) I ended up having to go to the ER because my elbow was huge from an infection. I knew that it was infected and was doing what I always do but when I left Crescent City CA it got worse and I was just ignoring how bad it was because I was trying to find a place to live before my husband and son had to start school. We had been looking for a place for 3 months and had no luck. Well they ended up having to go in and clean the nodules out and drain the elbow. Well it left a big hole. The hole has gotten smaller but it needs to be closed now. So they are going to go in on Monday and clean it out again and close it up inside and out. Which I think it is about time that they do it. So will just have to find things I do not have to do with my right arm for exercise only thing I can think of is walking.

    Thank You everyone surgery went well. I have a cast on for two weeks so I dont bend the elbow. I really hope this heals it for me. I am so tired of dealing with it. Besides I am going to go my moms next week and and it seems like every time I have flown in there and then flown back I seem to get in infection in the elbow but I think it was because of where we were living the town was not that great and my RA acted up all the time while we were there.

    I'm so sorry you've had to go through that, my dear friend. I don't know about them so much. I do have a neighbor that has RA too, like us, and she sure has had a time with them on her elbow also, to the form of deformity. I'm so glad that they could help you. Wow, that must've been painful! Ouch! Hugs, Hugs, Hugs!!

    Hope it goes good for you. My mom has RA & Lyme's disease so I understand what you're going through. She uses some natural products called Greens & Relief that really help. You can find them at rachelgrimes@myitworks. com if you wanna check them out.
