I'm walking unaided again!

Well, when I say 'walking', I mean it's more of a shuffling motion, but I'm sure it won't be long before I can take great big strides again...And sitting up (or down) is not such a problem anymore, either, as the pain in my hip and thigh is mostly gone. Now the only thing that worries me a little still is the continued numbness in my foot and the burning sensation in my calf which is really driving me mad -- you know how irritating a scald can be, don't you? Well, I've had what feels like a giant scald on my leg for 10 days now, and there's nothing can be done to soothe it as there is no scald. Just nerve pain; the kind, I would imagine, amputees are often reported as feeling. But let's not dwell on that; for the moment at least, let's be glad I'm getting back on my feet again!

Hang on, does that mean I'll have to go back to work tomorrow?

Also, another reason for feeling happy and upbeat today: it's mrmonkeybottoms's birthday!

You couldn't walk? What happened?
Feb. 28th, 2006 05:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, a bad and totally unexpected case of sciatica; I couldn't move from one minute to the next. But ;-) I seem to be getting better now -- thanks for your concern!

Sounds painful. :( Glad you're getting better!

The pain's no picnic, but ::points to icon:: I've got meds to deal with that. It's the boredom that comes with being immobile that I found hardest to deal with, though.

And I keep doing it to myself: I spent a large chunk of last year on crutches following an accident in the CoRo mosh pit. :(

Well, sedation is good. :)

...what's CoRo?

...what's CoRo?

Oops -- 'CoRo' stands for Common Rotation in my journal. They're a band I'm into, one of my other fandoms.

Hey, isn't that the band with one of the nerds on Buffy? Awesome! :)

Indeed. Though they're trying to distance themselves from that a bit these days. Lovely boys, all three of them (CoRo, I mean, not the nerds, although they're also quite lovely in real life).

Good to hear!
Feb. 28th, 2006 05:40 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Ordinarily, I'd say it's great having some time off work, but it's kind of pointless if you can't go out and enjoy yourself, so...I want this to be over, so I can get back to normal again. A few more days should do it.
Feb. 28th, 2006 05:42 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure it would make much difference to me!

Still, the pain isn't good. Time for it to go.
Feb. 28th, 2006 05:51 pm (UTC)
Exactly. I've got enough painkillers to get me through another day. If it's not gone by Thursday, I'm going back to my doctor.

Yay! Great news, hopefully as you are on your feet, you'll start to get the strength back alot quicker:)
Mar. 1st, 2006 11:18 am (UTC)
Don't worry, I'll be fine and ready for whatever you may throw at me in LITTLE OVER THREE WEEKS' TIME! YAY!!
Mar. 1st, 2006 02:09 pm (UTC)
Wooohooooooooo so soon!
Mar. 1st, 2006 10:58 am (UTC)
Oh dear, that sounds ghastly but I'm glad you're getting mobile again. :)
Mar. 1st, 2006 11:20 am (UTC)
So am I -- lying in bed all day is not my idea of fun. The crumbs! ;-)
Mar. 2nd, 2006 02:39 pm (UTC)
I'm glad your feeling better!!!! I can't think of anything worse than not being able to walk around freely :)
Mar. 2nd, 2006 06:22 pm (UTC)
It is quite frustrating, I agree.

You've been quiet for a bit -- I hope you've not been feeling too poorly yourself?
