Woke up feeling some kind of way this morning. Not sure if it's the pain meds, pain or antibiotics, but I have absolutely no energy to do anything today, except for eat, take another ibuprofen and go back to bed. Not enough enough spoons to take a shower right now or even get dressed so it's another in the bed kind of day. Thursday morning can't get here soon enough already and I'm trying to save the strong meds until then given that they might have to go ahead and lance it. Check in later. Going back to sleep now.
New, I was just talking to my mom and I think I would prefer to have it lanced in the OR under anesthesia, just based on where it is. It's really uncomfortable for me emotionally at this point to even consider having it done awake.
What is your diagnose? Just curious because that's how I feel all the time. I feel like I've been run over by a Mack truck. To months ago I had 4 coils put in for a brain aneurysm. I've always felt like I had "chronic pain" but have a high pain tolerance. It's just unbearable now :/
Mazzie, I have many different diagnosis at this time. The one that I'm struggling with the most right now is MRSA. Terri, I must admit I'm scared, and it takes a lot for me to admit that. Feels like I admitted defeat in a way.
Terri, mom and I just had a short conversation in which she actually encouraged me to go ahead and get sedation for it. Was kind of hesitant to do that but I think it's probably the best choice already based on where it is already. Time to get off here and take a pain pill before it becomes bad already.
Amanda, I'm so sorry you are still fighting this mess so hard. Maybe your tiredness is your body saying, "Rest up, everything else can wait.". I will be praying that the procedure goes well and that this year you will not have to deal with MRSA like last year... Praying you get the best infx disease specialist! (((Hugs))) & prayers! 😷🙏🌼
Mazzie73, welcome to the community! I have a friend that has surgery for an aneurysm. It took her nearly a year before she was able to really go back to full living on a daily basis. But she's had repeat studies for over five years and no more problems. She said the hardest was remembering to let others do what she wasn't supposed to. If you are having more pain you probably should see your doctor, just to make sure all is ok. You take it easy and we will pray that you'll be back to your old self sooner than later. (((Hugs))) & prayers 😷🙏🌼
Flappys, that appointment this morning was an absolute disaster. She tried to pull the hair out of it with tweezers. I said absolutely not already. Was granted an LOA from work graciously so I can get things taken care of.
New, for right now the plan is for me just to wait until the infectious disease specialist calls me back hopefully this afternoon. Going to head home and take a Vicodin Hoping to get some pain relief. And just waiting until Thursday when I can get it taking care of already.
Terri, I'm finally at home, had some Vicodin which is now kicking in mercifully, and getting ready to go back to bed in a little bit. I must say she had no idea what she was doing. If my butt is laying there jumping back whenever she touched it, wouldn't that have been a clue already that something was wrong? I try not to show my discomfort but if you are touching an abscess ouch! Oye!!!!!!! I should have just gotten an appointment with one of the docs who knows me a bit better. Sorry, just needed to get that out already.
