Five For Friday 5/17/19 & 5/24/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two PT sessions. I feel like I am finally getting stronger and my lower back in general is feeling better. Just need to tackle my left sciatica and SI joint and I’ll be like brand new ; )
  • Two Home Rehabs. Light walking and strengthening. Lots of foam rolling.
  • Two Shrink appointments. I am back to weekly for the time being. It’s a good thing.
  • I had my first infusion since pre-pregnancy days. My POTS came back with a vengeance a couple of weeks ago which has forced me to put my health in the forefront.
  • One primary care appointment.

1.Medical Stuff:

  • I had my 6 week postpartum appointment on Monday. Everything went well…I cleared for exercise. However, I left out the part that I’ve been exercising the last couple of weeks. Oops…did not know I had to wait for the green light.
  • PT on Tuesday. An hour of exercise, a half hour of manual medicine, and 15 minutes of heat and electrical stim. I’ve missed the stim.
  • One two mile walk with a pitbull. IN SUNSHINE.
  • One Day of Home Rehab…better…still need to add 1-2 more days.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I’ve been on the Ketogenic diet for two weeks now. Days, 7, 8, 9 were awful, but it has gotten better. I learned the trick of drinking broth before bed, and it has made life much better. That tells me electrolytes/salt were low and I must keep them up or I will feel like CRAP.
  • One OMM appointment. We focused a lot on putting my upper ribs back in place. Damn ribs, work with us.
  • One Day of Home Rehab. FAIL.
  • Back to PT next week.

Five For Friday 5/6/16

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I saw my shrink on Tuesday. Mental health…just as important as physical health!
  • I saw one of my OMM docs on Thursday. My left side was way out of whack. Thankful for gentle manipulative medicine to get me back in place.
  • I’ve been struggling with a Gastroparesis flare this week. Hoping it will pass much sooner than later.
