Story of my Non Healing Wound - the Stand Off Again

Posted 07-25-2014 at 12:51 PM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

I finally worked up the nerve to call the doctors office. His MA is a lovely young woman and I felt comfortable telling her my problem. She listened and will put a note on my chart telling Dr. S to be very clear pre- operatively of what he
wants post- operatively.
I can not sit properly, there is to much pain. If I change my position I take the pressure off and the pain goes away. I truly feel that no matter what they do I will always have the pain.

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - The Stand-Off

Posted 07-24-2014 at 06:33 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

Well here I am writing about the end, but it isn't, it is a stand-off. I have mentioned frequently about 1. Wound Nurses. 2 The surgeon and my husband. I am in the middle, how did this happen? Easy, I don't want to let anyone down.
This is such an emotional ride, up and down. As of yesterday my VNA came and measured the wound, it is not healing in the undermining. I know that because the pain is so intense. Yet at the wound center their measurements are much different, it shows that the...

The Story of my Non-Healing Wound - Emotions

Posted 07-19-2014 at 02:39 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

Why is it that when your feeling better and want to do some thing physical there is a doctor who tells you No!
In my case it is yard work vs my pain doctor. I need that yard work physically and mentally, it gives me a sense of pride. I have raked leaves, snipped away at tons of briars, dragged small limbs, pulled endless weeds and have had a good time doing it.
But, the doctor tells me no. Why? Because it will hurt my back, make the stress fractures worse or create new ones. I truly...

No matter which side of the debate you're on, there is a grill, and a grilling style, out there for everyone.
