  • I am continuing to improve...

    I am continuing to improve each day. I have not been having much trouble at all with having the urge to urinate and not being able to go--- my most sever symptom. The last week I have been in the bathroom about ten times a day and have urinated each time.

    I have also been able to do two things I was not able to do before. Yesterday, I went to a movie (and sat through it--- I did have to get up twice to urinate, though when I did, once again, I urinated). Also, I went to Buddy's Pizza (those in Michigan know it--- really good food) and ate two things that I have not eaten in almost a year--- pizza and homemade macaroni and cheese. This was not something that I ate all of the time before I became sick, though, it is the thing I missed the most. My pain (which has greatly lessened with the implant) did not increase after this meal--- it sure would have before.

    I still have pain, though it is much better. I am in the proccess of reducing the Hydrocodone slowly, hoping to completely stop it, and have stopped the Ditropan XL. I also have went from taking Hydroxyzine (75 mg.) nightly, to once a week. I am having a hard week adjusting to the changes, though in the end, I am hoping to have increased energy--- something I have not had in months.

    Amanda, I am soooo happy for you!!! I have thought about you so much since you had the implant and have been praying it would be a success.

      That's wonderful, I am so happy for you! Ahhhh...pizza and macaroni and cheese! I am soooo jealous... Every little thing is worth celebrating. What movie did you see?
      I'll be thinking about you and I hope everything continues to go well.

        I actually saw Pearl Harbor--- all three and a half hours!

        The movie theatre by my house has 30 screens and is brand new. The seats have arms that fold up; therefore, if you sit in the back row you can fold them up and lay down--- which I did.

          That's great Amanda! I remember who excited I was when I went to my first hockey game and didn't use that bathroom at all
