! First, I apologize for my tardiness in responding to your message! Thank you for remembering! I think I've found a great orthopedic surgeon but he wants to try several types of knee injections before we finally get to surgery, I hate waiting around while in pain between these injections. The first one seemed to work for about 10 days. Then my knees began to ache and within a day they were back to full-blown pain. I called his office and will see him on Friday, Nov 18 for the new injections. Meanwhile, I start PT tomorrow. I'm the type who would like to skip all the nonsense and go straight to the option that will help. But I'm guessing these steps are necessary before my insurance will approve the surgery.
I saw my pain management doctor regarding my lower back pain and he started me on lidocaine patches which are working great! Thank goodness.
And as if there couldn't be enough wrong with me already my bloodwork shows an increase in my calcium numbers. Evidently, it has been high for the past year but now has spiked to another point. I see an Endocrinologist on December 1st.
The constant change in my 'new normal' puts me into a deep depression. Right when I think I have a handle on the current state of my health, then another issue rears its ugly head. I don't mean to be whining because I know everybody on here is dealing with multiple health issues. Just trying to get a grip on everything and try taking one minute at a time.
Thanks again for checking in on me, Lori! Have a great day!!!
