It's currently 12:16am and I can't sleep because I get to go to the doctor tomorrow again. Hopefully they help me some what!! I'm excited to go honestly. I need it. Hopefully I get my shots tomorrow too!!! I've been waiting 5 weeks! They said it would take 5-7 days to approve!!

Jenna, I hope and pray that all goes well with you and that the doctor is able to give you the shots that you've been waiting so long for. Sending you love, {{{Hugs}}} and prayers your way.🌻🙏🏻

Just got back about 2 hours ago!!
I got my shots!! Sadly the pain is still there. But they have scheduled for a second shot thing on Nov 25. And if that doesn't work I'm getting the simulator implant!!

Jenna, I'm so glad. Today and tomorrow may be worse. I always used ice the first 24-48 hours (frozen rice socks... Can't tolerate ice). You may feel much better after the second. I'm praying you get whatever is needed. 🙏🌼

Can't use ice with this chronic illness :/ which sucks. But really excited for the next on . Only 4 weeks away. So not to bad I've had some pain relief in my body in most places except my legs so I'm pretty happy haha

Jenna, I'm praying for you that the shots do what they are supposed to do for you. If you don't get the relief that you desire, please, please, please do as much research on the implant as you can. I've said on here that I had 5 revisions and am left with a non working unit that cannot be removed without possibly paralyzingly me. So, the only thing I can do is use the pain meds. Ask the surgeon hoe many implants he or she has done and the success rate. Ask if there are any patients that would be willing to discuss their experience with you and answer any of your questions. I would not want to see you go through what I did or go through the procedure to not have it work as you expected it to. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I'm sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} hoping you feel better soon!! 💕🙏🏻🌻
