Pain, Pain, Go Away!

I haven’t updated my blog in quite some time! Since my previous update, my right arm has been healing very well. It is still weak, and some pain, but it is nothing compared to the pain in my left arm after surgery. I have gained much strength and the sensitive pressure ulcer is completely healed over, nothing but an ugly scar left. I went to my orthopaedic surgeon last week and he told me he was kicking me out of his office. I told him that I never wanted to see him again – at least not in the office! I’m so grateful that I have been blessed with such an amazing orthopaedic surgeon, I can’t imagine what may have happened without him. I will recommend him to anyone in a second.

Unfortunately, my health has gone downhill in other areas. A couple of weeks ago, I had a sudden onset of severe abdominal pain. After confirming it wasn’t appendicitis, the doctors suspected either an ovarian cyst or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Just what I needed, an additional medical problem to add to my list! I have an appointment with a gastroenterologist in a few weeks, so we will have to see what he thinks is our best course of treatment.
I’m just so sick of all of these health problems. So tired of being tired all the time. Frustrated with all of the appointments I have to keep just to keep myself going.

Added later: Turns out the abdominal pain is a kidney stone…but wasn’t diagnosed until living with it for 3 or more months.
