so sorry to hear about the tongue problem, how bad is it? Does it affect her speech? I may be having problems with my aneth. I just posted a thread in health insurance section. Its kinda long.
I'm still in PT. I missed a week due to my Addison's disease, long story there too. I got a TENS unit which has helped me a lot wish I had it in the beginning I would be out of there by now.
So by your comment I'm assuming your wife isn't having much pain now and is not taking any pain meds? The first day is pretty easy they just assess you, measure your range of motion (ROM) and stuff. But as it moves thru the sessions it gets rough or at least mine did, depending on what she had done and all. Just don't throw those meds away, but hopefully she won't need them.
There's always icing afterwards too, love that. Ice is my next best friend right now ha! I think I have about 10 more sessions to go and I'm working on strength bldg at this point. I have a 96 yo mom and when I take her to the dr. I have to push her in a wheelchair and she weighs about 230 and some of those ramps are steep.
tell your wife I said good luck on Monday and I hope her tongue gets better. oh I was just thinking, since its nerve damage, there's several meds out there for nerve damage. My son cut his hand several yrs ago that's why I know. Not sure if its applicable in her case but I'd ask about it. There's neurontin, lyrica, topomax, I think elavil is one too. He severed his in half and they were sewn back together. Doing well now.
ok, later, Cathy
