Finally getting discharged from the hospital/rehab. Been here since Sept 3rd, not sure I'm actually ready to go home, but insurance decided that's all they're paying for.
Oh damn.. what happened?
I wish. Severe neuropathy (nerve pain) caused by a REALLY bad B12 deficiency. The B12 part is fixed now but there's still agonizing pain 24/7. Like a fentanyl patch barely reduces the pain. Hurts like hell to type, I can barely walk, etc.
Ooof! Do the docs have any idea as to whether or not the pain will go away or has that become a thing now?
Seems to be an open ended healing process, I'll be meeting with a pain management doctor on Monday (which kinda points to a long recovery). I'm hoping that good PT and losing a few lbs will speed up the process.
Mental attitude (and fortitude) and positive thoughts and all that jazz goes a long way, too.
I've been trying to keep my attitude positive, and I'm super motivated to walk normally again. Tenacity i have, patience not so much.
