Getting Better

I have just read Jirfrye(Susan) post on how she is having a wonderful day. I am so very, very happy for her.

I also have some wonderful news to report and I just have to share it with everyone. I am also afraid I may speaking to soon and tomorrow my world will come crashing down again.

I am at long last actually getting better!! The pain in my feet is slowly fading away and the pinched nerve in my right thigh is gone!! As of 3 nights ago I have been able to sleep without elevating my legs to stop the burning/stabbing pain in my right thigh!! My thigh feel normal again!!
ow this can be I do not know.... my prayers and the preyers of my family are being answered!! I am begenning to feel normal again and it is the most wonderful feeling in the world.
Doctors have told me over and over I would always be in pain. The nerve damage was permanent so how can it be that I am suddenly getting better? I have never once gave up hope all through my ordeal and set back after set back.

I still have a long way to go because of my muscle weakness but I start physical therapy Friday to start building my strength and work on my balance issues. As my legs get stronger I know my balance will improve also.

After all these years of chronic, savage pain I am actually getting better!! I feel almost normal again!! I do not know why. But who am I to question the power of prayers?
I also want to thank everyone on this forum for your help and encouragement. You have been just great!! Bless all of you.
I do not know or understand why I am actually getting better but it is the most wonderful feeling in the world!!

Hugssssss to all >:D<

  • I am so glad you are getting better :), I have a very strong faith and i believe that there is nothing before the power of prayer, yourself and family asked in prayer and they recieved....some days i actually ask myself God do you see whats happening? or God why arent you helping me?....but I believe he answers prayers in his time and does whats best for each and everyone of us.

    I hope the pain stays away and physical theraphy helps you gain strength in your legs and entire body.you will be in my prayers and thoughts, I will say a prayer for you tonight and thankgod...when times are tough and there seems no end to it all i always try and think of the little footprints story..... :*
  • Wonderful that you are having a good day!!! Take it slow, don't get too excited, lol. Good luck with your physical therapy and may you continue improving.

    Best to you,

    Marianne
  • I am so happy to hear this, words can't do justice!!! I hope it continues to get better for you, and that the damage wasn't permanent after all, and the nerves have begun to repair themselves, wouldn't that be wonderful? Although I'm not religious, more agnostic, and haven't figured out that "benevolent being upstairs" thing, I do believe in the power of positive thinking, so I will be sending more positive thoughts your way, for sure!!!
    Hugs!!!

  • Thank you my dear friend. You have always been great to me. I thank you for that.
    I have not been without pain for several years and now it is just fading away.
    Yesterday I actually forgot about pain meds until bedtime and today I did not take my first dose until an hour ago!!
    Life is good!!
    Hugssssssss >:D<
  • I have missed you buddy. Was getting worried about you.
    Pete I do not know why i am getting better.....I just am!!
    My pain is fading away more every day!! Go figure!!

    No Pete, I no longer use my stimulator. It is not for me. But that is not unusual....stimulators are not for everyone. I could not take the constant pulsing/tingling and I even had mine "tweaked" twice. I even questioned that fact in another thread. Could I live with it??
    Do not let my problems with the stimulator keep you from getting your implant!!
    Hey....I used my riding mower yesterday for the first time in 4 years!! It was doooo good to work in my yard again.
    It took me as long to climb on it as it did to mow my yard coz of my weak legs!! LOL I was very tired but it was a good tired.
    Hugssssssss >:D<

Enjoy these days you deserve them , don;t forget us though we will miss you. Good Luck and keep up the good work.

  • Thank you guys. I knew all my best Buds would bw here to wish me well!
    I have always thought something else was causing my savage foot pain and now I am convinced it was. I do not know what....all I know it is fading away.
    Life is very, very good again and getting better all the time.
