I am getting nervous and just need to vent

Well, I spoke too soon. I called the physical therapist my PM doc wanted me to see and they don't take my insurance!!!!!
So I guess I will call the doc Monday and let them know...I sure hope she has someone else that I can go to.
I sent the kids in my DD's room to watch a movie so I can chill out and relax
Have to watch my soap that I tape everyday now....yeah I know...yes I am at home and can watch it when it comes on, but I have been taping this one show for years when I worked and I have gotten used to being able to FF through the commercials and this way, I can watch it whenever I want
Good night everyone and once again THANK YOU!!!!

Hi Marian

I am glad to see you made it home in one piece. I was wondering what was taking you so long to let us know what happened at your appt. I never would have figured you went the wrong way coming home.
I am glad you have seemed to find a caring and trustful specialist. At least you know where the pain is coming from, so hopefully you will get it under control now and give you back your quality of life.

Get some rest now. It has been a long day. Turn on those soaps so you can doze off into never never land.

Catch you again soon.

Marian, I'd have written sooner but I came home from work and fell asleep on the floor. I just woke up...oh dear.

It sounds as if you made great progress in your quest to conquer the pain today. What a great day!!!

Don't get too mad at your Mom for taking the "long way" home...I think God had his hand on you both today, and knew you'd need a good laugh!

Take those pain meds and sleep well...tomorrow will be a new beginning for you. Hooray!!!

Marian...Wow! Know the feeling of adding new diagnosis' to the list! So happy for you that they found the source of your added pain. Hopefully the prednisone will help. Also glad they gave you the pain meds you require until the pain issues can be addressed. Thankfully someone with the correct knowledge has come into your life to help you. I hope they can refer you to a new PT closer to your home. Sometimes those PT can work wonders. I am wondering about this narcotic contract. What does it say and why does it exist? Best wishes and prayers your way that all this will help your pain subside.

I almost fell on the floor laughing about going the wrong way with Mom. Gotta love em!

Thanks (((Peggy, sand, Amoreena))))

You know I couldn't wait for the kids to get home from school so I could tell them what Grandma did....LOL...she is always telling them stupid stuff I used to do that they relentlessly tease me about, so it was payback time... Also DH loved it and hasn't let up on her at all---I think she will be hearing about this for a long time. When I talked to her last night, she hadn't told Dad yet....LOL It was just toooo toooo funny.

It was totally amazing how much the extra Percocets helped me last night. I still had sharp "pangs" on my pubic bone every now and then most of the night, but for the first time in weeks, maybe months, I was really relaxed and comfortable. I am sure a lot of that was mental relaxation too.

Amoreena--- a narcotic contract is something that most PM docs will make you sign. In it , it basically states that I will not seek pain meds from any other doc unless it is an emergency situation, my script will not be refilled early, if I lose pills, they will not replace them and if I do not adhere to other therapys that have been prescribed for me, they will stop giving me the pain meds. So I had no problem signing it.

I only slept about 4 hours last night, but it was the best sleep I have gotten in a while. Ya know, I am the one who posted about the FM and hyst because of hip pain I have been having, not being able to sleep in the bed cause it would hurt my hips.....I am seriously sitting here and it hit me----I wonder if that pain from laying on my sides has anything to do with the inflammed pubic bones and spasming and inflammed pelvic floor muscles? Hmmmmm....it very well may be the case. I forgot to mention this to her, so I guess after I get going on this prednisone and therapy I will try sleeping in the bed again. DH even went out and bought 3 different mattress toppers that totalled 6 extra inches of foam and it still hurt the other night and I had to get up after about 5 minutes. I sure hope that is the case.
I am actually hungry right now for the first time in almost a month. My appetite has been poor because of my pain level, so I am going to wake up the kids and make a McDonald's run
I will check back with everyone later. Thank you all again, I don't know what I would do without ya'll

I'm actually sitting here smiling for you! It's odd, really, to find yourself sitting in a room grinning at a computer screen. I'm so glad that you are feeling some relief!!! I know it's the meds right now...but I'm sure at this point, it wouldn't matter how you were getting the relief, as long as it was there! I hope you are able to start getting some real sleep - perhaps that will go a long way in helping your body to feel good again, too. I know I always feel like a train wreck when I don't sleep well. And I wasn't sleeping well at all before I started my new meds. I've been doing great lately. I feel like a whole new person!!! I hope you do too! I'm so sorry it didn't work out with the PT, but don't let it get you down. I'm sure there will be another one.

Take full advantage of harassing your mother - if the roles were reversed - I'm sure she would never let you live it down!!!

Have a great weekend! (Eat!!!)

Marian, I have not been on the site in a week or so. I remembered that you had your appt. with the pain management doc end of this week. I am glad to see that you have finally gotten some answers to what is causing you all you pain. I hope all this new treatment along with the meds, will put you on the road to a pain free life. From reading your posts, it seems you feel better mentally/emotionally about things.

Take Care!!

I just read all your posts, I am so happy for you!! Just to find out what was going on has to be a relief in itself!
Hopefully, your doctor will find another PT that takes your insurance.

Good luck..and I'm sure that laughter was good for the soul!

I am getting nervous and just need to vent

You are right, I really don't care what is making me feel better at this point...LOL
It is funny, I was just commenting to my DD (11) that even though the past few nights I haven't slept a long time (4-5hrs) it was a GOOD sleep...and even when I could sleep hrs, it wasn't a deep good sleep and I felt worse getting those 7 hrs than I do getting last night's 4 hrs.
I was wondering where you have been....I had computer problems last week and was off for about 5 days and it drove me crazy!...LOL...Thanks for being here for me
I am glad I got some answers too...even though that meant 2 more things besides my adhesions
Yeah, I am sure that I will be able to find another PT that can help me...I live in a big city, so I don't think that will be a problem. Thanks for reading all this mess

Last night was Dad's bday and DH and kids and I went over for cake and ice cream and the kids really let my Mom have it about the long drive home...LOL...so did DH---he REALLY let her have it, since she is always picking fun at him for his Tim the Toolman episodes at home...
Today is my grandmother's bday and they can't wait to tell her about it (Mom's mom)...but I already told her, so I need to tell her to pretend that she hasn't heard it before or they will be mad at me...LOL
My pubic bone STILL hurts from her exam yesterday!
Love and hugs to you all!

Hi Marian ,

I am very happy for you. I am glad that you found someone who would listen, do a very thorough exam (even though it was painful), and be able to diagnose the pain.

Even though I don't get on here very often anymore, I often think about you, and search for your posts when I do.

Kudos for having an appetite, and being able to get a good nights sleep!!!!!

I hope you get the physical therapy issue worked out, and as you always say...please keep us posted.
