Sorry, it's been awhile. Been taking a bit of a break. So to update recent events I've been in a lot of pain lately. But, I'm still trying to stay strong!
About three weeks I got in to see the only pain specialist in town due to a cancellation. Lucky! Apparently the waiting list is over 2 years, ouch. So, we discussed my types of pain which is pretty much my whole body but mostly back and pelvic pain. He poked around, asked questions and got very personal (yes, internal exam, think I'm actually getting used to it). He decided to do some injections for muscle tension. These shot included 0.5% Lidocaine, 0.25% Bupidacene (it's very hard to read my doctors writing, so correct me if I'm wrong). My first appointment I received 2 shots in the vagina and 6 shots in my back. The second appointment I got 6 more in my back. Seems like my back feels looser, if that makes sense.
Tomorrow is my surgery conslutation for the bowel resection, it's finally here. It feels more reall
