Sindromu ekwina cauda – Eżenzjoni Imprevisti

I really didn't want to believe it...

Imma llum hija ċerta.

Last week, I kien żdied problemi bil-bilanċ tiegħi. Now that really helps when I've also got a torn peroneal tendon fuq l-għaksa dritt! Anyway, Ħamis filgħaxija tiegħi Sindromu ekwina cauda upped l ante - I ltqajna uġigħ żdiedu b'mod sieq tal-lemin tiegħi / għaksa (uġigħ fin-nervituri, bugħawwieġ fil-muskoli, uġigħ immaġinarja - kollha ta 'dan).

ps21v14Allura immaġina sorpriża tiegħi meta tard nhar is-Sibt, eżatt qabel tmur torqod, il-bilanċ mogħti lura flimkien ma naqsu ħafna uġigħ!! I went to bed thinking it to be a fluke. I didn't mention it to my wife because I thought it was just one of those transitory things we get when we suffer with CES.

Filgħodu ukoll il-Ħadd, l-uġigħ kienet għadha baxxa ħafna. We went on to church and came home. I waited for the pain to increase... After returning home from church Sunday evening I was very hopeful that a permanent change had occurred, iżda xorta I stenniet.

Fuq qawmien dalgħodu, saqajn tiegħi qisni I tista 'tmexxi fuqhom mill-ġdid jekk mhux għall-tendon. Of course my legs wouldn't let me run anyway, iżda issa kien fuq 36 sigħat - twil biżżejjed biex tiddikjara li l-uġigħ marda tiegħi inbidlet b'mod drammatiku għall-aħjar. All of this just after the 1 marka tas-sena. In fact, kif I wara dan, għada jimmarka l- 1 anniversarju tal-kirurġija dekompressjoni tiegħi.

I've also regain some feeling in the back (hamstring) qasam tar-riġel tax-xellug tiegħi - that's new feeling too! So progress continues. God has a wonderful sense of timing - biss meta taħseb li għandek bżonn inkoraġġiment f'qasam wieħed, Hu jagħtik inkoraġġiment fi Stat Membru ieħor. And that encouragement reaches out and stretches itself right into the area you need it to go. So that is a double blessing! Grazzi, Lord!

Continuing the walk...

Story Back – CES | Xahar 3 ma cauda equina Syndrome

Merħba għall Back Story, Parti 3.

Dawn il-postijiet se tlaħħaq minn meta kelli milqutin Sindromu ekwina cauda sakemm tibda blog tiegħi f'Xahar 4.

April 17, 2013, Home:

Mill me - my rehabilitation continues and I am seeing improvement, li hija milqugħa, iżda mhux dejjem pjaċevoli. As I jibda jkollna tħossok lura f'żona, dan huwa normalment uġigħ li inħoss. I've had a lot of pain related to a very tight muskolu piriformis fil ġenbejn dritt tiegħi. I've had exercises and stretches for it, li għenu xi. Peress li xi wħud oħra uġigħ jkollhom marret, huwa żmien li tikkonċentra fuq l-akbar uġigħ inħoss dritt issa u li huwa fil-quċċata tal-ġenbejn fuq il-ġenb ta 'wara. Jidħol minn għoqod up, tarf ta 'fuq l-piriformis.

It-Tnejn fil Terapija Fiżika, terapista tiegħi ħadet madwar 5 minuti biex tagħmel massaġġi muskoli fil-fond ta 'dak il-post. Hija "iweġġgħu tajba" il-ħin kollu. A ftit minuti wara l-massaġġi, l-uġigħ naqas għal xejn. Kelli mobilità ferm aħjar, ebda uġigħ mill-mixi jew seduta! It-Tnejn u l-ewwel 1/2 tat-Tlieta kienu kbar. Imbagħad, tal-kors, il-muskoli beda issikkar darb'oħra. Il-Ħamis I jkollhom sessjoni tiegħi PT jmiss. Kim huwa għaddej miegħi u terapista tiegħi, Carrie, se juru tagħha fejn u x'għandek tagħmel. Matul l-eżenzjoni minn dan l-uġigħ, I bżonn ftit medikazzjoni uġigħ. Now that is a goal I'm looking for!

I'm working 1/2 ħin id-dritt issa, u mal-PT u xorta bini mill-ġdid stamina, li jaħdem tajjeb għalija. I se jibqgħu fil- 1/2 - 3/4 żmien ftit ġimgħat aktar mbagħad jippruvaw jagħmluha lura għal żmien full.

Tħossok rkuprati fl-aħħar ġimgħa:

Koxxa dritt barra (partijiet) - riżultat huwa li inħoss l-tight, tendon infjammati issa hemm
Qigħan ta 'saqajn - I issa jistgħu jħossuhom meta l-art huwa jibred
Quċċata tal sieq tal-lemin - anything that touches it feels like I'm being stung by a wasp
Iż-żewġ għoġġiela - I issa jistgħu jħossu l-bugħawwieġ kienu li

Still numb / ebda tħossok:

Oqsma backside u fil-groin
Koxxox - naħa ta 'wara, ta 'fuq 4 pulzieri biss, żewġ saqajn
Saqajn aktar baxxi - I jista 'jgħidlek touch dawn l-oqsma, ebda uġigħ fil shins jew ġnub, għoġġiela bugħawwiġ għalkemm
Feet & Għekiesi - għadhom fil-maġġoranza numb

Still diffiċli li jibbilanċjaw - I jista 'joqgħod mingħajr assistenza għall- 60 - 90 sekondi, I tista 'tilħaq distanza qasira (f'ċerti direzzjonijiet biss) għal oġġetti

Seduta - xorta iebsa biex ipoġġu għal ħin twil. Xi siġġijiet I tista 'ddum siegħa, oħrajn 10 minuti. U għal kemm żmien I jistgħu jkollhom biex ipoġġu li fihom jippresjedi bidliet minn jum għal jum.

Mixi (ma 'walker) - uġigħ mill-piriformis normalment tillimita me mixi madwar 400 saqajn fi żmien bi mistrieħ twil bejn

Mixi (ma kannamieli) - I issa jistgħu jimxu distanzi qosra (<50 saqajn) bil-kannamieli. Għeja ħafna biex jagħmlu dan, so I don't do it much. Therapist jirrakkomanda 3 kannamieli qasir mixjiet kuljum.

Mixi (mhux assistita) - I tista 'timxi bil-mod ħafna, jagħmlu mejta żgur ta 'bilanċ tiegħi għal kull pass, għal distanza ta ' 5 - 8 saqajn. Dan huwa ġdid.

Sommarju - qed isir progress, triq twila biex imorru s'issa. Żomm fuq titolbu għall Kim u lili bħala għad hemm kwistjonijiet oħra mill-sindromu equina cauda li x'aktarx qatt ma terġa 'lura għan-normal u jaffettwaw il-ħajja ta' kuljum. Dawn huma l-aktar ħorox peress li m'hemm ebda trattament disponibbli għal dawn il-kwistjonijiet, huwa biss f'idejn l-Mulej jekk il tfieq ħsara fin-nervituri jew le.

Tamiet tagħna u l-fidi huma Alla's hands. Tifħir lil Alla għal tberik Tiegħu!

Mill me - Well today is a sad day of sorts. It is my physical therapist's last day here in Ohio.

Mill me - Bummer... iżda tajjeb, Nispera. Quddiem tal-koxxa dritt tiegħi jħoss simili huwa ħakk. Of course meta I igirfu, I don't feel a thing. But I'm hopeful that this is an indicator of feeling coming back to that area. Madankollu, nothing escapes the fact that it is a total bummer having a body part itch and not be able to get relief from scratching it 🙂

U ma 'li, aħna waslu fit-tmiem tal-istorja lura. Continue with Month 4>>>

Frar 25, 2013, Riverside Metodista Isptar, jum ta 'dekompressjoni tiegħi kirurġija:

Mill marti, Kim - David ttieħdet sa op minn qabel fil- 5:30 dalgħodu. Surgery kien 7:30. Minn 9:30. Kollha marru tajjeb, iżda huwa jkun għadu tnemnim residwu saqajh. Huwa ma resqet ħafna ġurnata kollha; uġigħ huwa fi 2 (KEMM aħjar minn qabel). Għada hu jara l-terapista Phys u jekk hu jista 'jimxi huwa jista' jmur home jgħidu. Imma hu ma kellu bm, għad għandha kateter, u dawn kienu kkonċernati bil-kliewi tiegħu. Hekk hu kellu ultrasound minnhom. Forsi għada aħna se tkun taf aktar. Grazzi tant għall kollha l-talb! Hu jkompli bless us ma 'tali moviment ta' inkoraġġiment aħna awestruck. Grazzi hekk ħafna!

Frar 28, 2013, Riverside Metodista Isptar:

Mill me - Today should be my last in the medical side of the hospital. Il-pjan huwa għalija biex tibda terapija rehab intensiva fuq bażi residenzjali hawn fl-isptar. I don't have much pain, iżda għad hemm tnemnim u tingiż minn ġenbejn tiegħi għall-sieq. Lemin tiegħi hija dgħajfa minn fuq ix-xellug, iżda ninsab f'posizzjoni li tikseb up fuq saqajn tiegħi u jimxu 50+ saqajn (I ma kinux mixi sa 2/11, għalhekk iħoss tajba, anki jekk huwa ta 'sfida u miżjuda mal-uġigħ.)

No one knows how long for the rehab yet... Huma jgħidu kullimkien minn ftit jiem sa ftit ġimgħat. Of course, I tista 'tmur id-dar illum u rehab hemm, but the house isn't suited to it and I still need a good bit of help that Kim is unable to provide. Nirringrazzjakom ilkoll għall-talb tiegħek u ħsibijiet matul dan iż-żmien. Issa l-parti iebsa jibda, u għad għandna bżonn l-talb. We love inti kollha!

2 Marzu, 2013, Akuta Inpatiant Rehab Center, Riverside Metodista Isptar:

Aġġornament minn Kim fuq David - Okkupazzjonali tiegħu u terapija fiżika sessjonijiet huma produttivi; t'isfel tiegħu lura madwar ġenbejn għadhom Grieve lilu imma mkien viċin kemm ħażin bħal qabel; hamstrings huma mod wisq stretta u jeħtieġu tiġbid eżerċizzji kif jagħmel qalba tiegħu; 6 sessjonijiet illum mxerrda thruout-għodu u wara nofsinhar; huwa ltqajna irqad tajjeb aħħar bil-lejl u jittama li tonite kif ukoll. Istabbiltà marda tiegħu hija l-akbar ostaklu issa. Huwa juża walker & siġġu toilet speċjali imma hija kapaċi li tikseb u 'l barra ta' sodda ok, u jimxu f'nofs triq madwar il-unit rehab fuq art 6 issa. Dan kollu jieħu ż-żmien. Huwa għadu catheterized u se jkun ukoll fis ġimgħa d-dieħla jew iktar, jiddependi fuq xi test ta 'kontroll bużżieqa nhar l-Erbgħa. Imsaren tiegħu huma moderazzjoni kważi wisq issa !! ;O Aħna hekk japprezzaw kulħadd titolbu sabiex verament u konsistenti għall-irkupru. Anke mal-provi tal tiegħek, inti xorta rikonoxxenti. Dan huwa LOVE għall ya! Hugs kbar għal kulħadd.

Marzu 3, 2013, Akuta Inpatiant Rehab Center, Riverside Metodista Isptar:

Mill me - The staff tells me I will be finished at the rehab unit on Wed (6th)! I just hope that my week left knee doesn't slow that down.

Marzu 3, 2013, Home:

Minn Kim - Well, it's good to have David home again! Issa għall-dixxiplinar ta 'kull wieħed minna li tagħmel żgur hu gets l-eżerċizzji PT jsir (xi hu ma, xi I bżonn jagħmlu biex / għalih). Huwa għadu inkontinenti fiż-żewġ oqsma, so we're keeping the Depends folks in business 🙂

Grazzi tant għall-talb, u aħna nirringrazzjaw 'l Alla għall-tweġib tiegħu fil-mod tiegħu, fil-ħin tiegħu. David's not out of the woods yet with his walking/stability though. We'll keep y'all posted.

Ewwel xahar My bi truf cauda equina Syndrome ... Xahar 2>>>>

CES | Xahar 11 ma cauda equina Syndrome

Xahar 11 għandha tittajjar minn (kif għandha Xahar 12 s'issa, b'hekk din il-kariga tard).

.lies

Xahar 10 ended with some bad things happening in my personal life. These continued through most of Month 11 as well. I was dealing with the feelings caused by my familja member and also a friend. Of the two, il miksur ħbiberija hurt far more. The relationship with my family member had been on a long slow descent with an abrupt, iżda qasir, cliff at the end. The broken friendship is something that I didn’t see coming… a total surprise and shock. We’ve all been there before, iżda dan kien daqshekk twil peress xi ħadd I ddeċidiet li mill-qrib fil-qalb tiegħi għamel tali ħaġa.

 

.unknowingMa rridx l-ħbiberija miksur, but it remains that way to this day. For almost a month, I didn’t know how I would feel should my friend ask for forgiveness. Eventually, the hurt receded. This allowed me to align my feelings with my caring for this person. I am now at the point where I can forgive my friend should they ask for it. I can also continue the friendship; madankollu ma jkunx qrib kemm qabel ... M'inix f'punt fil-ħajja tiegħi fejn I am lesti li jafdaw liars biżżejjed biex jippermettulhom fil-ċirku tiegħi ta 'ħbieb qrib. Perhaps I never will be. The really sad part is that I don't think this person has the first clue that they've done anything to hurt me.

 

 

.trust

Milied came and went during Month 11. We had a nice, quiet time - iżda l-older niġi, the more I miss having a family that loves one another. We don’t have children and that puts us in a lonely place too. I come from a very dysfunctional family. Perhaps that is why I have such revulsion for liars. My family’s holiday gatherings (Thanksgiving & Milied) kienu dejjem turi kbar fejn kulħadd jitqiegħdu fuq maskra u għexu barra gidba li konna kollha normali, caring family. The rest of the year told a different, sad story. I survived, iżda mhux mingħajr ħsara, by getting out. 2014 jimmarka tiegħi 21st sena ta 'mijiet għajxien (f'xi żmien eluf) of miles from family. If you rule out the “visits” when they were just bringing my Mom to see me, jew pick up tagħha, I jista 'joqgħod fuq il-sieq tal-banda kif ħafna drabi familja tiegħi żaret me f'dawk 21 years. I, madankollu, żaru minnhom mill-inqas tużżana darbiet.

Fuq CES tiegħi ...

Filwaqt I kien mixi bħal Frankenstein u kapaċi li jħossu għekiesi tiegħi, it seems I had such a poor gait that I tore a tendon in my right ankle. Now that I have some feeling there, Kont naf xi ħaġa minbarra l-uġigħ fin-nervituri ta ' Sindromu ekwina cauda was going on. The Doc said only surgery will fix it, but for now I’m only wearing an ankle brace. Had I noticed this earlier last year I would have had the surgery, imma hija sena ġdida, with a new insurance deductible. And of course I’m on a high deductible plan (mhux mill-għażla - huwa kollha offerti ta 'min iħaddem tiegħi).

I have regained feeling in a lot of areas. The results of the nerve conductivity tests showed most of the L4/L5 damage has healed. This was the level at which the disk blew out, so I happy with that finding. However the points below L4/L5 still show significant injury and the jury is still out as to what will happen with those areas. I do have more “xokk elettriku"Sentimenti tip, mostly in my right foot. The backs of my thighs and lower buttocks are still numb as is most of my genital area. B&B għadha kwistjoni li tieħu ħafna ta 'ġestjoni (thats Bużżieqa & Musrana, mhux Bed & Breakfast).

I ġew imħeġġa, kif Xahar 11 magħluqa, mill-grupp żgħir Studju tal-Bibbja we’re doing in our home. Between that and studying for my CMA eżami fi Frar, I haven’t had much time for other things or maintaining relationships. I’ll be so glad once this exam is taken. I’ve had to give up some things – things I love doing - on the schedule in order to concentrate on these. After the exam, I jkollhom koppja ta 'proġetti oħra fuq il-lista lesta tiegħi, so I se tkompli tissospendi busy.

Ma Syndrome cauda equina tiegħi jaffettwa kollha ta 'dan? Definitely! Does it help shape my life? Absolutely! Is it defining me? In some small way… it is a part of me, just as my arms or legs are. Yes, Għandi ħżiena jum, kemm fiżikament u emozzjonalment - nisperaw mhux it-tnejn fl-istess ħin! Through it all I rely on God’s love to see me through. In His love He knew that my back would be injured and He used that event to prod me to grow closer to Him. He has sustained me, mrawwem me, and lifted me up. I am a better person, at a better place in life because of God taking the lemons of Cauda Equina Syndrome and helping me make lemonade out of them. Where that will lead I do not know, imma dak avventura I am fuq!
