Five For Friday 7/5/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Prolo on Monday. Dr. C thinks things got stretched out from labor, and I have since sprained my hip and both SI joints. Prolo in the hip capsule, both SI joints, and groin.
  • 1 Day of PT. OMT only since it was the day after prolotherapy and I felt it was best to give it a chance to work.
  • Lots of time on my trusty heating pad this week.
  • 1 shrink visit. Starting to taper one of my meds. Fingers crossed.
  • 1 Infusion. Had to wait to start while they called my docs since my blood pressure was too low. They determined I was okay enough to do the infusion and thankfully did not have to go anywhere.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of PT. I added an SI belt to my repertoire of braces. We had a good laugh over the fact that I am doing a 5k and I may just show up in my back brace, SI belt, and neck collar. You gotta laugh, peeps.
  • One shrink appointment.
  • Sciatic pain is no joke. Working on it, but I have a feeling I also need prolotherapy in that area. To Indiana, I go…ASAP.

  1. Medical Stuff:
  • One day of PT. My hip/back pain has evolved from feeling like EDS pain to an injury pain. We are continuing to work on it with exercises, stim, heat, and OMT. To say I feel frustrated would be putting it mildly. Breathing.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. Trying to make more time for these appointments. They are so, so important for my overall health.

Five for Friday 3/29/19 & 4/5/19

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One PT. Strengthening. Cardio. OMT. Electrical Stim & Heat. We talked about different ways to hold Lucia so my ribs don’t flare up.
  • Two Days of Home Rehab.
  • Prolotherapy! I made it back to Indiana after 15 months, a pregnancy, and a hard labor. So grateful for this treatment that has saved me from many major surgeries so far. We did my hips, pelvic area, shoulder, thoracic and first few ribs. I’ll go back in a couple of months for my neck. In the next few days, I lay low and love up my heating pad.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. We covered a lot in that hour. And guess what? Healing is not linear.
