Welcome everyone to the month of March.
I hope soon the cold weather will be over. I live in Carolina and the temps have been up and down. We have had days in the seventies and then back in the thirties. I hate the cold as it just makes me ache even more.
I spent all last week with my ribs hurting. After exhaustive testing the dr came back to me with the diagnosis of marked degenerative changes in my spine. The pain I am mistaking for rib pain is actually the muscles knotted up because of increased arthritis. While I am happy I have no broken ribs or cancer present in my bones the diagnosis has left me with little chance for improvement. Honestly it feels just like my ribs are bruised. My primary care dr advised I increase my pain meds. I am sure my pain management dr will just open the pharmacy for me--NOT!!
The muscles in my back tighten up so I have had to increase my muscle relaxers. This makes me tired and I am already tired enough from the pain and pain meds. To me its like one more thing added to what I already have to deal with. I am getting to the point where I don't even want to go out anymore.
The end of this month I get my cancer treatment started. I am going with the seed therapy. The dr has to order the seeds, about eighty of them then surgically implant them. I just cant wait for that!!!
Please know I pray for us all here on the forum. I was listening to a message the other day and the pastor said all the pain we suffer does have a use in God's plan. He must have an incredible plan for me.
God bless us all
