Hi all. 14 weeeks since the ankle break and 12 weeks post surgery. I am moving along. Wonder if I am doing too much? Ouch Ouch Ouch, Both legs( calves on both, +ankle on injured right one) really hurt from yester days' intense PT stretching, weight-lifting, balancing paired with fibromalgia and neuropathy; but I will keep up with the home exercises. Yesterday, Both before and After the therapy session in the am.; I was on my feet most of the day. I was having 5 people over for dinner; and I was cooking and cleaning and up and down the stairs to the basement. Maybe I was too active. I really want to get back to my "busy bee" lifestyle, but I have to try patience No pain no gain???o
Any Suggestions on how to dull the pain? I take Ibuprofen and Lyrica, at the lowest doses possible. I did not take them prior to bed last night; and of course, I was in pain a lot. I am tempted to split , into quarters,a 5mg Oxycodone tablet this morning, as I really hurt, but do not need the possibility of hallucinations today.(Saw Huck from "Scandal" approaching my mailbox instead of the Postman last time I took it at full dosage. He did not ring twice-LOL) Will take an epsom salt bath and relax..
BTW, Next week I will have a needle biopsie of the adenoma they founf behind my thryroid. Parathyroidsism, of which I have 80% of the indicators, and about 75% of the symptoms( including tingling painful neuropathy and muscle cramps, joint paint): can be reversed by a simple surgery. If such is the case, maybe the ankle issues will be more easy to resolve after I have it.
Everybody have a fine Spring day!! I had a lovely dinner last night.. Blood sugars were cooperative and the company was grand!!
