The path to normalcy...

I've been out of the hospital for a week now. I was in there a week for pneumonia. I've been released with oxygen. I'm concerned because my breathing is still so bad after walking around. The hospital stay itself wasn't bad. trying to get my pain meds was a nightmare. I also went back to work dragging my oxygen tank behind me. It's good to be home tho.

I am now 6 weeks post op. I had an anterior incision for a two level lumbar disc fusion with corpectomy. Overall I feel fine. My incision is completely healed and I'm applying bio oil. My abdomen still feels a little bruised but only when I lay a certain way. My back is healing nicely, still tough to sit from laying, and standing from lower positions is difficult but also expected due to time frame. My next appointment is day after tomorrow, then I will see about physical therapy and progress, also...

waiting to get my medication

Good morning, well I didn't get my medication delivered on time, the Meloxicam n Flexerill,although they r nothing compared to what I'm used to taking. I wish I could have asked for tramadol, a pill that works like morphine in the brain. All I can do is the best I can, until I get the morphine, n even then, I have to only take two per day. I guess I'll take it when the pain is absolutely unbearable. When I go back on the 9th, I'm definitely going to mention the tramadol or ultram.

pain management problems

Posted 03-27-2015 at 09:36 PM by babygirl 4474

Hello group. I went to the new primary care physician yesterday, only to have me feel like a criminal. He had his nurse come in, as if just to make me look like a bad guy. This all started because I thought from 2/5/15 to 3/5/15, was when I was do to get my medication. Because February was a short month, oil had to wait till the 7th. I started having withdrawal symptoms, n I wasn't used to that, the diarrhea, shocks in my legs, sweats. I wish I had been strong enough to hold on. I wish...

Update 3

Posted 12-31-2014 at 02:33 PM by Tori358

Hi all! I am 22 days post op and doing well. I noticed yesterday that I have about a 2-3 inch strip on the underside of my arm that is completely numb. It starts about my elbow and goes down my arm. Other than that I would say I'm doing quite well. I am able to bend my arm pretty easily. My incision looks like its healing well. I still have Steri Strips on it which I can remove in another 3 days. After I remove them I was told to start massaging the incision with something. I will try some coconut...
