Well today sucked.

Back update: X-rays are clean, nothing wrong with my spine, physical therapy 3 times a week for 4 weeks. Each time is going to cost $75 because my insurance is crap.

Knee update: Nothing left to do, but surgery. So Dead end at this point.

Physical Therapy did wonders for me after my knee surgery. I was givens tons of exercises to do at home so even though I've stopped physical therapy, I'm still progressing and actually made it up and down a flight of stairs today without being in agonizing pain. Kinda odd to make it to the bottom and realize I didn't have to stop partway and it wasn't massively painful or even uncomfortable!

Can't say I enjoyed having knee surgery but I am way better off having done it than living in constant pain.

I actually really enjoy physical therapy (: Just gotta get out there and do it!

I hope everything starts feeling better.

For what it's worth, I have some of the best insurance and I have to pay $25 a time. It adds up x.x

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I ride in a Wacoal bra that works miracles. I'm a 32H, and have to go to lingerie shops if I want something that fits. Recently though I've found Wacoal bras at Macy's. This sports bra has underwire, and actually covers your entire breast- a little annoying in the summer, if you want to wear a tank. This bra even keeps me in place while doing a sitting trot with my half saddlebred!

Hope this helps!

I LOVE my physiotherapist, I can't believe the improvement in range of movement I have in the few visits, and by religiously doing the exercises she has given me. I am ROCKING it with her help!!

Well, apparently my physio just sucked then. She did a bunch of voodoo stuff to apparently help the muscles heal and relieve the pain. But, it didn't do anything for either. Just time and regular movement in my life helped. Then finally she gave me some exercises to help strengthen specific muscles, but first off, I despise exercises and secondly, they were too hard to do, which if they are too hard for me to do, I can't imagine the average person that I know doing them. So I made my own routine that I can do while I live my life instead of spending 45 minutes a day doing her specific exercises. Same result, but it's not a PITA to do and the muscles are improving.

There are bound to be some crappy ones, although mine was great too. The exercises he gave me were very helpful and he modified the ones I couldn't do.

Ok, Update. PT...ouch. Lol Medication is kicking my butt. Sweating really bad, heart rate was up last night, and I've felt like puking all day. Dr said that is not uncommon, because it is fighting the infection.

Some this that has been going on in the back ground. I've had Depression since I was young, and I've started having anxiety problems with in the last few years. My Counselor wanted me to get blood work done, so I did. I got the results back yesterday, and I can't say I'm surprised, but I'm disappointed it caught up to me so quick. My thyroid is low, B12 is low, cholesterol is through the roof, and Insulin levels are 3xs what they should be. Diabetes runs in my family, but it didn't normally show up until they were 50. *sigh*

Update: I am now seeing a rheumatologist, get the results on the 17th.

Pain is still there.

One of my JRTs passed away a few months ago. I now have a Chihuahua puppy, and a GSD mix, as well as the other JRT that is in my profile pic. They all keep me busy, and active, and that's the best I can do right now.
