What a day
Tue, 04-24-2012 - 10:37pm

I ended up seeing 2 back doctors at the same time. That was great except one that had me doing PT wants me in a brace for a while. But surgery is the only other thing besides and injection and that is just putting off the surgery for a while...

The other one that told me I had Weaver's Bottom gave me an injection in my behind that I have to say has helped. And then he injected my right knee with the chicken goop.....lol....I don't know what it is called...And that at least tonight has taken the edge off that pain too. But he said that replacment is where I am headed...

He said he would like to see me lose some weight......he said "you have lost some but you need to lose more".........DUH.......

I told him that when you can't move it is hard to lose weight.....he said you don't have to move starvation works.........lol.......a funny back doctor.......

Then I did get my mammo.......Whew.......I am tired.....

My doctor wants me to have another blood test for my pancreas(sp) thinks that since my gall bladder was good that maybe that is causing my stomach thing...

I have been really watching what I eat....and I know not eating is not good but I never know when it is going to act up......found that grilled cheese don't bother or Ramen noodles.....so I have a sandwich one day and noodles the next... So I am going to have to find something else.....that gets boring.....and I really am hungry.....but rather not have the stomach or whatever acting up....

Hello Janet. I too have been having alot of back pain. Went to the orthopedic doctor and he sent me for some injections and they really helped but I need to go back and do it again. With my back, there really isnt much else they can do for me.

Had my pap and mammo a couple weeks ago so I'm good for another year.

Have a great day!

Hugs, Jackie

Weaver's Bottom? that's a new one on me, lol
Do you like yogurt at all? It's good for the stomach. You might want to try different kinds just to find the right one. Right now I've been eating the Greek Yogurts with fruit on the bottom.
I know. It's a stuggle..but just keep going! :)
