Feeling grateful

Oct 30, 2015 11:56 AM

So this afternoon the gamut of emotions have been running through my brain and yes, this is normal for me.
1. I'm eternally grateful for my gyn. He actually took the time to listen to me when nobody else would. In the past 10 months, I have been to 3 PCPs, 2 surgeons, 1 NP who all kind of seemed to either brush off my concern or tell me it was all in my head(which it's not)
2. Sadness comes with that as well, because as above I feel like my concerns were just swept under the rug already. I'm also feeling a bit of anger along with that sadness as well.
Recovery from this one has been a long journey so far, and I've still got a way to go. Feeling quite weak and really sore still, but each day it's getting better. One day at a time.

Amanda, I totally understand. I rely I was being shuffled from one to another doc last year and most of this year. I'm so very glad you're at this point. Good, really good doctors are one in thousands.

Flappys, you have totally got that right and truly I think I've gotten a 1 in 1,000 already. It also helps that they are immediately available by phone to their post-op patients which has been a god send this week. Received a phone call back within 15 minutes after each and every phone call that I've made. At this point, I'm kind of trying to hold back the happy tears that are there. I've also told my mom that I'm stuck like glue to this one. Lol. Vicodin kicking in now. Going for a well deserved and needed nap.

Amanda, one day, one hour, one moment at a time. You got this!! I know how much you are going through and your feelings are valid. It'll be ok, you'll find that you will get better and have better moods as you heal and move forward. Just remember that no matter what you're going through you have your fellow pain warrior family here to lean on. You'll never be alone and I'll always be here to lend a hand where I can. Sending you lots of love, {{{Hugs}}} and prayers your way.💕🙏🏻🌻
