Sorry I’ve been off line. Since the accident, I’ve been so afraid of falling. Well, it finally happened last week. I fell as I reached the kitchen sink. I broke my left wrist (displaced colle’s radial fracture). Luckily my orthopedic is familiar with RSD (as he still calls it). I’ll see him tomorrow to see if the bone drifted and if I’ll need surgery. Due my CRPS, he wanted to give the nerves and swelling time to relax and calm down. The bad news is there are signs of nerve damage and there is a very good chance of a spread with the CRPS.
The ER doctor was great and did try to ease my pain but was shocked that all the drugs they gave me had no effect and they hit me with morphine, Fentanyl, toradal, and diluadid. Doctor couldn’t believe I wasn’t sleepy and perfectly coherent. But that means the Vicodin the orthopedic gave me is doing nothing for my pain.
As a result of my fall, pt on my leg is on hold and I’ve just been in a really bad place mentally. I’m back to not sleeping because I can’t get comfortable and I am so very tired of being in pain all the time. I have honestly cried more this last week than I did the last nine months.
Just trying to take things one day at a time.
