>Quick Back Update…


As you know, I’ve been struggling all week with motivation to get looks done. Coupled with the days getting considerably shorter each and every day- my room turns shadowy very quickly, so I’ve been frustrated. Anyways… Not the case for the rest of the week and weekend.
I’m determined to get ALL my looks done- which were outlined in the prior post (don’t quote me on that!)- and will have the videos up very, very soon. The big computer is occupied all day (stock market) so I don’t have a chance to hop on until late afternoon. This is why my vids get posted so late most days.
So… With all that said so far, I wanted to tell everyone just a quick blurb about yesterday. I had another Dr. C appointment, and I woke up completely twisted and kinked the wrong way. He immediately saw the way I was sitting, felt my back, and said “You’re tighter than a tight drum… Let’s go…”
To make a long story short, I had four nerve blocks done in my back. Each one hurt- especially when he had to map out where the most severely inflamed ones were. I got through it, but not without nearly jumping off the table in agony. I was able to calm myself down, and concentrate on moving forward- progress. Once the blocks were done- it was strange to feel my leg and foot go cold from my hip down, but it was considerably less pain. Immediately went down from a 5 to a 2 on a scale of 1-10. I was wiped out from the pain I had been subjected to in trying to find the dang nerves… So yesterday it was a lazy day. I came home, sat in my chair, and just relaxed. Napped. Didn’t move much.
Today, I woke up at the same… Maybe a pain level of 4, and now I’m down to a 2. While I don’t have the piercing heat and pain in the right-section above my hip where I’m having the problems, it’s a dull aching instead. This is bearable. It’s progress in the right direction. I plan to keep on truckin!
I’m hoping this will last longer than the last single block did last time- 6 weeks. They’re supposed to last for up to 6 months- so my fingers are crossed that this time, my back will cooperate. Every day will get better… Because I believe it will 🙂
