  • 2nd DMSO today

    Today I went ahead with my 2nd treatment. My nurse said that if this one does not help then, they are going to go ahead and refer me to the pain clinic. I had so much pain from the last DMSO that I ended up taking 2 pain pills every 4 hours and even then it sometimes wasn't enough. With this treatment today I couldn't even hold it in for a half hour. I could only make it about 15 minutes. The catheter even hurt more. I am hoping that I will feel better this week. I will keep you all updated. Thanks for all the support ......

      Did they put in lidocaine or similar substance first? I always make sure they do for me and it really cuts down on the burning.

      Sending healing thoughts,
      Stay safe
