Five For Friday 7/5/19

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:

  • 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 made my return to PT after six weeks! My joints were a bit of a mess after labor and the break, so I was in desperate need of manual medicine.  I exercised for an hour as well…After the treadmill, I said to myself, “But did you die?” I did not, so I’d call the first day of my comeback a win ; )
  • Now, how do I find time for the other days of home rehab? My next goal…

Oh, summer you are going far too fast…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Last infusion! (I don’t mean my hydration ones…I’m a lifer for those).
  • PT. Changed it up. Elliptical instead of treadmill. Neck manipulation instead of rib manipulation.
  • Acupuncture.
  • OMM appointment. It had been since February. That’s pretty encouraging, but I needed to get back.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Lots of OMM on the good ol’ neck and jaw. Light strengthening. Stim.
  • Walked in the neighborhood 5 out of seven days.
  • Infusion on Thursday. Probably the fastest one I ever had.
  • Acupuncture on Wednesday. First time I did not fall asleep.
  • More blood work. How do I have any left?!
