Getting Foot surgery- need prayers

May 03, 2017 11:33 AM

OK guys, I'm getting foot surgery on the 11th to fix the damage RA has done to my foot. I am off my Embrel until 6 weeks after surgery. Today is the last day I can take my Leflunomide. I'm already having more pain and stiffness that the Lyrica and Cymbalta are not helping with. Added onto this is the fact that my job has been eliminated so I have the added stress of trying to job search with all of this going on. This is going to be a long road! I'm trying to stay positive and surround myself with strong people to help me out and I am giving things over to God, But I have a feeling I am going to be using every tool in my toolkit this time! If any of you have any suggestions for me, please post them here!

I'm praying for you on all fronts. For lowerpain, the medical team, sussesful surgery, quick rehab with low pain, new better job for you on the other side.

See the post you just told about your pain kit. I added some addition things I keep in mine that may help.

I will look for the app link but there is a bible app that also reads the bible to you. So at times you can just settle in and have your favourite verses read to you and let them sink in deeper maybe durring hard times. Or just let it play reading the Psalms.

Blessings sweety. They are a coming.....

I had foot surgery. Two unions removed and bolts in my ankles for flat feet. The only advice I can give you is to take it easy. Don't try to do too much. Stay on top of the pain with meds and of course pray!🙏
