Sorry.......

Good evening ladies,
Sorry it has been so long since I have done a post but it seems I am on a merry-go-round and it just won't stop.  It turns out that my second double surgery was not a success.  Not enough to get me back to my regular self.  I still have a nerve pinched and have incredible pain.  The good thing is that Norco which is an addictive opiate really doesn't work so I don't take it as prescribed.  I did develop a nasty opiate addiction after a long illness several years ago.  I had to go through medical detox.  I don't want that again.  So, that is what happened in March and April.  I had to get new MRI's, ex-rays, and nerve conduction studies.  So I want to reach out to you and ask if anyone knows someone who has had this problem.  My symptoms pretty much remain the same the only thing that was healed was the rubber band sensation and the rocks in the bottom of my feet however; the rocks have turned to cotton but still it hurts.  I am taking it in stride and trying not to get depressed but I did find that for me Neurontin a drug that is sometimes used as a psychotropic does elevate my mood keeping my depression at bay but very sleepy.  Now, that's not all I actually had two cancer scares.  In my MRI they found a very large cyst on my only ovary.  I thought this is great.  I had a hysterectomy in 1999.  I did it mainly so I would not get cancer there and also because I had fibroids or very heavy periods.  My wonderful gyno decided it would be good to leave an ovary in so I would not have to take hormones.  What a nice guy.  So, now I have this mass on my ovary.  I have to have it checked great no cancer it's just the worse thing menopause.  I can't even tell if I have any symptoms.  The only thing was just some night sweats.  Nothing else.  So, I am not going to take any hormones. Then I go get a mammogram and the letter is very confusing.  It sounds like they were not able to get good pictures.  Not my fault but it says they I need to call my gyno.  Luckily my gyno says everything is fine.  So, that is what has been going on.  I hope everyone is well.  I have only one post for tonight but a compare and contrast post for later in the week.
Ciao for now,
Patty
