Thanks. I went through this a year ago so I know what to expect, and this was session 7 out of 9(all oral, no infusions this tine around), hopefully over the hump.
Love Top Gear! Watch it all the time! Sorry you aren't feeling well Tatt! Treatments, are the worst! Oral or Infusions. Mom is 6 years out, I spent a year going back and forth to Colorado to help her out.

Tatt, I am so sorry you are still having to deal with all of this. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

As for me, I am spending a little time here at DC in celebration of the fact my IV treatments were stopped today when they finally realized that it had cured the infection and was now reeking havoc on the rest of me. So, I can watch the Grey Cup game tomorrow without having to take off for an hour. I still have to take pills to clear up the damage from the antibiotic, but hey, I can shower without having to have a bag taped to my arm to cover the IV port! You got to celebrate those small victories!

Thanks, Bucky and Tatt! I felt all the love from all of you and just couldn't stay away.

As soon as this is all cleared up I can get back on track with my Chronic Pain Program. I had to put it on hold, but have a meeting in 2 weeks to determine if I am suitable for the last part of the original recommendations - an 8 week day program which includes all facets of self-maintenance. I probably won't get in now until January or March, but the workshop I went to in October has given me a lot to start with. I still have all the pain, but I am learning how to deal with it better.

One thing is to not overdue it at the computer so my hands get too stiff and sore, so I will be on less frequently than I was, but more than I have been the last few months.

I know that the pain part can be just as mentally wearing, as it is physically. I too am waiting for that page to turn. The drugs they had me on originally have cause some serious issues/side effects(avascular necrosis)and I am in line for hip replacements now. The daily pain is something I have gotten use to but it is effect work, life, and just overall well being. I need to do something that doesn't involve narcotics.

Are you going to be seeing a specialist group/practice, or is it more like a class(if I am understanding correctly)?

Tatt, I hope you feel better soon. LP, it's good to see you back and I'm glad you're making progress no matter how small.

Tonight is a night of backups at work. Watching a progress bar is only slightly more entertaining than watching paint dry.

Tatt, I will PM you the details tomorrow so I don't take up this thread with it but it may be useful for you to see if any of the programs are available in your area. The first one was a workshop made up of people who all have chronic pain (or other chronic ailments) and lead by volunteers who also suffer. This next one is put on by the Pain Clinic of a Vancouver Hospital, which has been a model of others all over North America.

PAG, I understand about watching status bars - I have found them to be great sleeping aids!

Well what I am doing right now is saying good night all!
