Well today was a very good day
as I had some nausea in the morning but had the injection in time so that I wasn't sick
pain is very well managed today as I'm not as bad as I was this time last night. All my neuros are good as they check them everyday which you would expect as they are 'playing around' with the spine. Traction is going well,can feels complete difference in my back, as the muscles are soft for the first time in about 3 years
AND I can see a visible difference in my ribs
which is a great sign I think to show that it is working and also I can feel it sometimes in my back and ribs
so I how that this is the only week that I will be on it.
Will be asking my surgeon tomorrow if I can get a chair with a traction unit on it so that I can go out and get some air and sun for a bit, as it's getting boring being inside 24/7
The tramdol generally don't make me sick as during the day I'm fine, its just the morning I feel ill.
But all in all its been a good day
and I'm going for a xray to see how much correction I have got from it
so will let you know how it goes
