Got a date this morning of October 27th at our local hospital. Going to be under general anesthesia only because I neglected to ask about epidural. Having to come off ALL NSAIDS now prior to. I must admit the next two weeks are going to suck!!! But at least I have a date at this point. Yay!!!!!!

And in addition to that, let's add more to my plate. 7 days of IV antibiotic infusions at the doctors office. Each and every day already.

Amanda, that really blows!! In glad that you are getting taken care of. I can't remember ever having a problem coming off NSAIDs. You'll be ok!!! I have no doubt that with the strength and straight forwardness that you do. I think I'm falling asleep!!! My body is jumping and twitching badly right now and I keep dropping the phone. Think I am falling asleep now. I hope you have a good night and wake refreshed and ready for the day. Keep us posted and let us know how you are doing. 🌻🙏🏻

Alwayz, another one has started to fester again right below the last incision. Don't need to go to urgent care unless I spike a fever. On antibiotics right now,but may need to go to the surgeon again next week. This totally sucks!

I'm sorry Ananda!!! You must be just fed up. I know that you just want these things to stop popping up!! I can't even immagine what you deal with!! Sending {{{{Hugs}}}} and my prayers that all goes well. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Amanda, It seems like you can't get a break! I know you are frustrated and tired. I'm lifting you up with hugs and prayers, that soon you will be rid of these outbreaks! 🙏🌼

Guys, you have got that right. I'm tired and frustrated so that makes it worse, oh and add stressed to the mix. Have definetly got to get myself to the surgeons office already as much as I hate to do that. Got to get it taken care of before surgery already. GRRRR!!!!!!!!

I hear you Amanda. I didn't fall asleep this afternoon so I would fall asleep tonight but I'm still awake. I wish I could do something to make you feel better. At least I can give you {{{{Hugs}}}}. I'm here if you need me. 🌻🙏🏻

Alwayz, I actually goofed. Went to bed at like 8:30 pm and here I am, almost 3:00 am and wide awake. I think the issue tonight is just anxiety and pain mixed together. I will be so greatful to sleep a whole night after surgery. It's driving me nuts!

I sure understand that, Amanda. I'm going to just put the phone down, turn off the tv and just close my eyes and lay here awake with my eyes closed. Maybe I'll actually drift off for an hour or two. Catch up with you later, Amanda.. I hope you catch some winks too. Sweet Dreams.💕😊

I have to say I feel somewhat fortunate. I have not gone to the levels of hell some of you survive in. I will say that I found out that any drug interferes with seratonin. Will contribute to being unable to sleep. I stopped taking my Lexapro at night. Magnesium helps immensely with muscle pain and spasms. As for the times when God hits you with a flyswatter, you just have to do the best you can.

And ice. You can sleep on ice bags. .

Alvin, sometimes it feels like a sledgehammer rather then a fly swatter already! And yes, I've been through the depths of hell this year and survived.
