Have been having a pretty rough time lately with debilitating pain in my hip. Saw the consultant yesterday, hated him as he pulled and poked and hurt me so much I just lay there and cried. MRI scan arranged, DEXA scan arranged, raft of bloods taken and then he sent me to physio to get a walking stick! I know I need it. It so do not want to use it. He offered some suggestions for pain relief , we discussed my desire to continue doing as much as I can myself so morphine not really an option here, he suggested Lignocaine patches......by this time I do not care, am exhausted physically and mentally.
How can I be reduced to a snivelling wreck of a woman who cannot even comprehend what is being said....I am not stupid, silly sometimes but so not stupid, yet he must wonder if there are any lights on!
Well got the patches from doctor yesterday afternoon ......al I can say this morning is my rheumatology consultant has become my hero. No pain, can weight bear , even tried turning on that leg, well a little twinge.....so so relaxed and happy this morning...three weeks of such horrible pain is now ended
So the sun is out the day ahead looks so much brighter and maybe a gentle walk will be on the cards later, without the walking stick
Hope you all are having a pain free day
