Many a time in my life I wish someone could have been there to hold mine. Just close your eyes and imagine all of us there huddled around you...........it'lll all work out.......I promise!
Ashley, Susan and Ryan, thank you!
My appointment was a bit of a disappointment. I was pleased to not have any more injections, but I am now stuck between a rock and a hard place in terms of where I go from here.
The Specialist said that there was no use using a nerve block as it would not cover the whole of the pain area, plus nerves can grow back but display different sensations. The anaesthesia didn't work well either, so he wouldn't do that again and he said pain killers have too many side effects, so he won't put me on those So I am to suffer for a bit longer *sigh*
The last resort that he mentioned was a group that I would have to attend to learn to deal with, live and function despite the pain. (he said that he's rather avoid that although he still thinks that I am a little pitiful being housebound for the majority of my time - but I have all you guys! )
He now wants me to go to the gym and lift heavy weights on my legs to try to build up my quads. (I don't think he realised that i've been trying to do this for the past two and a half years!!) He seems to be expecting a little too much from me! *sigh*
I am now trying a 'Bio Ion' bracelet and going to have some accupuncture ( I'm not sure how well i'll do with the needles, but hey?!)
I'm trying to keep my spirits up - and laughing at myself when I get overtaken, at the shops, by little elderly ladies! I am SO slow!!
Thank you again for all your love and support, I really appreciate it and couldn't do all this without you!
