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...

Story of my Non-Healing Wound - the Dilemma

Posted 07-02-2014 at 04:14 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

It has been a long time since I have written. The choice of surgical intervention vs. Oasis and waiting is very hard to make.
Two camps
Surgical - my surgeon, my husband
Wait- everybody else in the world
This wound has stalled yet again. It refuses to heal completely. I said completely, it does heal by centimeters, 1cm. only. Waiting means it may heal be September.
The surgeon and my husband want this ordeal over. Sew the darn thing up and go live your life. 10...

Another day in paradise!

So today was very sore and tired. Yesterday I had an appointment at my pm, which is a bit of of trip and requires trains and taxis, as I can't drive long distances.
So late today I had a really bad flare up! Was in tears!!!!

Story of my Non- healing Wound - Pain

Posted 06-16-2014 at 03:52 AM by RABG (Story of my Non-Healing Wound)

I am going to step out of my sequence-and recall an incident that happened several years ago.
.This is the second time I have written about pain because it looms over my head continually.
After reading some of the posts about pain, mostly about running out of medication, it brought an unhappy memory.
About 5 years ago I did run out of medication. Horrible, just horrible. Withdrawal is a whole body experience. Runny nose, shivering, sweats, body aches. And nasty! Never forget...

Another great day!

Posted 06-11-2014 at 03:09 PM by cspineguy (CSPINEGUY'S Journey)

Another fun day of pain! Just seems tough just to get around and do things and so tired of being in pain. Couldn't even shower today, as didn't want to deal with the pain. At least I made one good move, called to get some psych help. I know I need it, as I feel more useless each and every day and somedays wish I wasn't here anymore or that I expired on the operating table. Watching my wife work so hard and worry about bills just kills me.
