Been ages since i wrote anything on here - not since the reamp so see if i can do it.
A month ago whilst on holiday - david managed to throw himself from the top step (only 4) on to concrete. His foot just didn't clear the tiniest of raised buts and down he went. Landed on his right good side splat. Didn't break anything but badly grazed all extremeties and landed onhis bad hip.
As i said nothing broken but all his already broken body shock itslf around.
Big dos and litle dos he didn't get better so a call to the wonderful pain clinic. Dr James saw us yesterday. yes i always go - mainly to support David but also cos Dr Jmes is such a pleasure to talk with. A fried.
He always calls me Pat - tha's nice cos it's my name! And if I behave i get a huge hug too. Worh going for that alone.
We discussed how long since david had his spinal injections and had heen seen he consultant about hus Burritis?
He;d had a sreroid injection a few weeks ago and spinal just before that so no more ags possible.
David just needed something to get on top o the extra pain where cocodamol ont work. Fr James presrcibed Etoricoxib for 10 days only. It is one of those drugs that can shred your tummy and david had been on similar years ago and had to stop.
So armed with another pill I had one happier bunny!tApart from the medical treatment David gets from our pain clinic they are friends. You become part of a family.
To all those who come to this site in pain, depressed or looking for advice - never give up. We don' have the answers. The pain clinic don't have the answers. But togther we can suport each other gaining knowledge.
So to dr James and his wonderful team - thank you again.
PS This won't read back to me as the old site did so if this is rubbish - hope it makes you smile.
