Dr. K Update [Dec. 9th, 2008|07:01 pm]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

He gave me anti-nausea medication. In fact, it's the strong kind they give cancer patients going through chemo. The plan is to try that and bland food for 1 week until I get the spine injection. The day after the spine injection I follow up with Dr. K and he prescribes me pain management meds for over the holidays based on how I do.

He said my pain log was very helpful and one of the best he's ever read and to keep it up. It is my job to record this stuff daily all week to help him decide what we are going to do to keep the pain under control over the holidays without me throwing up.

As if it got the joke, I filled my anti-nausea medication, went to the car, took a pill and immediately threw up into a bag in the car. Isn't throwing up your anti-nausea medication ironic?

When David gets sick, he doesn't do it by halves. The last two times we had to get injections (that knocked him out but stopped him throwing up), followed up by medication taken...well, let's just say, not orally.

Glad you could keep a tab down later (looking at your other comments).

Also, glad you have a PLAN for dealing with this.

*giggles* I get frustrated with my health, but I know that not only does Dr. K care about me, but he cares about my future. He wants me to still be working and to still be myself 5, 10, even 20 years from now.
