  • Hi - hon -Thanks-- My Megan from Pain Care called to see if i was OK !! what a nice thing to do . she is the one who gives me my back shots-- she asked if i needed anything -i told her where most of my pain is i don't know if she could do any thing - Mister left " T "- she said not now ???? {that shocked me }- to close to surgery date-- but if still in Pain on like wensday call her?!?!?!--{A NEEDLE THERE??????? } at 1 st i didn't think she was serious ???? SHE WAS .every time for a bowl movement it feels like a harpoon jabbing me and you know where:-( :-( :-(--------------more pain pills--- taking 2 every 5 hours now. Mary said to tell you she has been waiting on me hand and foot !!! BUT she said she won't touch ANYTHING in bettween !!!!!-- :-( I think ,for the 1 st time in my life i would refuse a helping hand there ?????????? This operation is 20 times more painful that the hip. no wonder the Dc. { surgeon insisted on me using stool softeners} he wasn't kidding- just got up from a nap-sleeping alot during the day, of which i never do- a cough or a sneez----OUCH-tears to the eyes type of pain.Megan said to me -- J-- you take those pain meds so you can walk, its going to to be the best thing - no need of you being in that much pain and i know you don't like taking them BUT you must. Stomack gergling again - just took 2 more vicodin ( hope they work fast before i have to go again ). i had no idea it was going to be like this ???? was hoping on of the squirls running around the back yard would steal that nut!!!!!! I'll call you in the A.M.--- if my voice is a few octives higher you will know why !!!!! Megan said that whole area from scrodum up to hip bone is all inguinal area and all is compromise with an operation like that- alot of tugging and pulling goes on in an operation like that and boy it feels like they used a come along or a auto wrecker !!!!!!.. teary eyed-- non jumping - slow moving me -- ALMOST FORGOT -- , lovely jess said i should use a frozen package of peas as a compress??????? she said it gives a whole new meaning to the saying PLAYING HARD BALL. isn't she just a barrel of laughs ??????- she realy is a sweet heart.she knows the the discomfort i'm in, but it hurts to laugh !!!!! remember my saying laughter is good medicine -- well guess what -- NOT ALWAYS talk to you tomorrow --------------------------me

  • Happy day after Easter up there n NH. I hope you are progressing through recovery. Forgive my spaciness, and forgive prying, but what surgery did you have? I'm awake here in WV at 3 AM due to that invisible OA troll who lives under my mattress and periodically chews on my hip bone in the middle of the night. First time the pain has woken me up in months. So what did I do wrong yesterday? A sunrise service before breakfast and Alleve? Too much walking? ( even though I used a crutch for much of the day? ) Or was it the use of the crutch which irritated the joint?

    Weather? Or was the moon NOT in the 7 th house and Jupiter refused to align with Mars?

    Let me tell you-- I'm counting the days until my drive to Duke for the steroid injection! 29 to go.

    Again, I trust you find this day after Easter will show continued improvement and return to normalcy! ( and less pain!)


  • I had an Ingiunial hernia -left side---------------surgery was 3-27-13 ,up in LEBANON- HAD COMPLICATIONS WITH URINATION, but we got that straightened out with out catheterization-- had some constipation--- and the realization -- i was down right in pain.---------going to see Dc. Megan today at Pain Care ,she is going to take a peek - DON"T TOUCH,, TO PAINFUL------------ OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!------just me ,stitches.

  • Good on you: Mary F - I am sure you will be fine as long as they don't dare prod you in the wrong place. X

  • Mary NBC universal has blocked it from playing in this counrty on copyright grounds -- sorry hon !! it looked interesting :-(----------------- ststches
