YAY!!! [Nov. 12th, 2008|03:06 pm]
[Current Mood |thankfulthankful]

The pain management clinic worked me in for NEXT TUESDAY!!

That is unheard of. We could be trying a nerve block THIS YEAR!!! *dances around*

See, sometimes I feel like my prayers are heard. There is only 1 pain management clinic in the state, and they managed to do this after I've heard nothing but horror stories of months and months of waiting. I called my doc and asked if he'd faxed the referral. He did it yesterday! It's like magic. What if this WORKS? It would change my life. Either way, Dr. Irving will evaluate my pain control. If I'm in less pain it could be the best Christmas I've had in a decade. There is no better gift than health.

Just imagine what it would be like to have a life without nerve pain. YES, I would still be an emotional eater with Endo, but the nerve pain takes a daily toll that those issues pale in comparison. I'm feeling great! (Let me clarify, I'm still in bad pain, but I'm feeling hopeful and excited about my future!)

I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, because my doctor didn't seem to think chances of it working are that good, but he said, "If it does work, this would be CURATIVE." Yes, a CURE for the pain, not just a treatment.

Short of a cure, I'll still get treatment and another opinion of how to best manage the pain from the best guy in the state! Either way, I win and could feel a whole lot better. *teary* Ok, thanks for celebrating with me! This is indeed wonderful news!
