Hi my name is Robin.


Ok, my story. I have IBS, major knee reconstruction ( 2 bolts and a 6'' rod ), and kidney stones/ bladder spasms. I'm in constant pain 24/7 and am getting pretty tired of it. Yes, I'm getting cranky LOL.


I was invited over here by sweet Cheri ( hey lady! ) and I hope to find some advice on not having to take pain pills all the time ( Vicoden ES ).


Well, that's it in a nutshell. I hope to get to know y'all !


Hugs,


Robin

Hey there my friend !


Thanks for the welcome, I've been lurking since you told me about this board, I feel now I can share, whine, be cranky and no one here will tell me " Oh, get over it ! " because you can't 'see' my conditions ( just the effects of the pain ). Can you believe that I'm called a 'faker' and all I 'want is attention'

Hi Nadine and thanks for the welcome !


The doc told me the spasms are from the parts and pieces of the stones that were smashed are bopping around in there. Personally I think they are partying LOL ! He gave me Levsin .125 tabs that I'm to put under my tounge and let it disolve.

Heya new friend !


I tried to get the doctor to move up the date of the next Liptho, but he wants my kidney and bladder to heal. I can see his point, and luckily he has a lot of empathy for me. He's great !


May I ask you a question ? I LOVE your fairy under your name, may I please copy her ? I collect pix of fairies and such.


Hugs & luvs,


Robin

Hi, again!


I can do better than let you copy that one.

Hi Robin it's nice to meet you!It's always rough to live with pain 24 /7 .Is there anything you find that helps? can you exercise in warm water without too much pain?Can't they find something to help with your kidney stones to get rid of them?That sounds miserable!Of course your tired of it all demand some help from your family doctor that's what I finally did after much complaining my doctor finally realized the problem had gotten worse and actually gave me something that's helping a little with all the inflammation I've been having. If nothing else come and vent with us will hear you out ! Gentle hugs and a warm welcome shilleagh
