Hello all my SH friends, I have missed you all but had to do without internet for a couple months as we adjusted to my income decrease.
I hope you all are healing well and feeling positive.
Here I am now lets see, I have been in pain management since February, they have me on a Fentnyl patch 25mcg hr, still using Hydrocodone 10/325, neurontin 2700 mg daily, added Tizanidine up to 3 times daily for muscle spasms.
I have also begun seeing a urologist and am on Vesicare for incontinence (overflow, stress, and urge).
A gastroenterologist for gerd and gastritis he has me on Prilosec 40mg and sucralfate. My anemia has been well controled the past 3 months.
I completed my 18 sessions of physical therapy and am a bit stronger, I can walk about 500 feet with just a cane then need my walker, a half mile total then I need my scooter. The pain is no better hence the new meds.
I had 2 steroid injections the first did nothing and the second, 3 weeks ago, has me feeling worse (has anyone else had that happen).
I just found out that I have been approved for SSDI effective Feb of this year, they will re evaluate me in 5-7 years.
Thanks for "listening" its good to be back,
God bless and keep you all,
