Kauda equine syndrome – Misaada isiyotarajiwa

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

Lakini leo ni kwa ajili ya baadhi ya.

Wiki iliyopita, Mimi nilikuwa na kuongezeka kwa matatizo na uwiano wangu. Now that really helps when I've also got a torn peroneal tendon juu ya kifundo cha mguu wa kulia! Anyway, Alhamisi jioni yangu Kauda equine syndrome upped ante - I got kuongezeka kwa maumivu katika haki mguu / kifundo cha mguu wangu (maumivu ujasiri, tumbo misuli, maumivu imaginary - yote).

ps21v14Hivyo kufikiria mshangao wangu wakati marehemu siku ya Jumamosi, tu kabla ya kwenda kulala, usawa akarudi pamoja na sana ilipungua maumivu!! 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.

Vizuri Jumapili asubuhi, maumivu bado ilikuwa chini sana. 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, lakini bado mimi walisubiri.

On uchao asubuhi hii, miguu yangu waliona kama mimi naweza kukimbia tena juu yao kama si kwa ajili tendon. Of course my legs wouldn't let me run anyway, lakini alikuwa sasa kuwa zaidi ya 36 masaa - muda wa kutosha kwa kutangaza kwamba maumivu ya mguu wangu ina kasi iliyopita kwa bora. All of this just after the 1 mwaka alama. In fact, kama mimi post hii, kesho alama 1 mwaka maadhimisho ya decompression upasuaji yangu.

I've also regain some feeling in the back (hamstring) eneo la mguu wangu wa kushoto - that's new feeling too! So progress continues. God has a wonderful sense of timing - tu wakati unafikiri wanahitaji faraja katika eneo moja, Yeye anakupa faraja katika sehemu nyingine za. And that encouragement reaches out and stretches itself right into the area you need it to go. So that is a double blessing! Asante, Bwana!

Continuing the walk...

Nyuma Story – CES | Mwezi 3 na Kauda Equina Mwilini

Karibu Nyuma Story, Sehemu 3.

Posts hizi itakuwa kuambukizwa up kutoka wakati mimi alishambuliwa kwa Kauda equine syndrome mpaka kuanzia blog yangu katika mwezi 4.

Aprili 17, 2013, Nyumbani:

Kutoka kwangu - ukarabati yangu inaendelea na Mimi naona kuboresha, ambayo ni kuwakaribisha, lakini si mara zote mazuri. Kama mimi kuanza kupata hisia nyuma katika eneo, ni kawaida maumivu kwamba mimi kuhisi. I've had a lot of pain related to a very tight piriformis misuli katika hip wangu wa kulia. I've had exercises and stretches for it, ambayo yamesaidia baadhi. Kama nyingine maumivu na ruzuku, ni muda kwa makini na maumivu kubwa Najisikia hivi sasa na kwamba ni juu ya hip juu ya upande wa nyuma. Ni linatokana na ufungwe up, mwisho juu ya piriformis.

Jumatatu katika Tiba ya kimwili, mtaalamu wangu alichukua juu ya 5 dakika kufanya kina misuli massage ya doa kwamba. Ni "kuumiza nzuri" wakati wote. dakika chache baada ya massage, maumivu ilipungua kwa kitu. Mimi nilikuwa na bora zaidi uhamaji, hakuna maumivu katika kutembea au kukaa! Jumatatu na kwanza 1/2 ya Jumanne walikuwa kubwa. Kisha, bila shaka, misuli kuanza inaimarisha tena. Alhamisi nina PT yangu ijayo kikao. Kim ni kwenda na mimi na mtaalamu wangu, Carrie, ni kwenda show yake ambapo na nini cha kufanya. Wakati wa misaada kutoka maumivu hii, Mimi haja maumivu kidogo sana dawa. Now that is a goal I'm looking for!

I'm working 1/2 wakati sasa hivi, na kwa PT na bado kujenga stamina, kwamba kazi nzuri kwa ajili yangu. Mimi kukaa katika 1/2 - 3/4 wiki wakati chache zaidi kisha kujaribu kufanya hivyo nyuma wakati full.

Hisia zinalipwa katika wiki ya mwisho:

Haki nje ya mguu (sehemu) - Matokeo yake ni kwamba mimi kuhisi tight, inflamed tendon huko sasa
Bottoms ya miguu - Mimi sasa wanaweza kujisikia wakati sakafu ni ya baridi
Juu ya mguu wa kulia - anything that touches it feels like I'm being stung by a wasp
Wote ndama - Mimi sasa unaweza kuhisi tumbo wamekuwa kuwa

Bado numb / no hisia:

Maeneo Mgongo na groin
Mapaja - upande wa nyuma, juu 4 inches tu, miguu yote
Chini ya miguu - Naweza kusema kuwasiliana na maeneo haya, hakuna maumivu katika shins au pande, ndama cramping ingawa
Miguu & Kifundo cha mguu - bado zaidi numb

Bado ngumu kwa usawa - Naweza kusimama bila msaada kwa ajili ya 60 - 90 sekunde, Mimi inaweza kufikia umbali mfupi (katika pande fulani tu) kwa vitu

Kukaa - bado mgumu kukaa kwa muda mrefu. Baadhi ya viti naweza mwisho saa, wengine 10 dakika. Na kwa muda gani naweza kuvumilia kukaa katika ambayo ni mwenyekiti wa mabadiliko kutoka siku hadi siku.

Kutembea (kwa Walker) - maumivu piriformis kawaida ya mipaka ya mimi kutembea karibu 400 miguu wakati kwa muda mrefu wengine katika kati ya

Kutembea (na miwa) - Mimi sasa unaweza kutembea umbali mfupi (<50 miguu) na miwa. Chovu sana kwa kufanya hivyo, so I don't do it much. Mtaalamu inapendekeza 3 short miwa anatembea siku.

Kutembea (unassisted) - Siwezi kutembea polepole sana, kuwafanya maiti na uhakika wa uwiano wangu kwa kila hatua, kwa umbali wa 5 - 8 miguu. Hii ni mpya.

Muhtasari - maendeleo kuwa alifanya, njia ndefu ya kwenda bado. Kuendelea kuomba kwa Kim na mimi kama bado kuna masuala mengine kutoka cauda equina syndrome ambayo ni uwezekano kamwe kupata nyuma ya kawaida na kuathiri maisha ya kila siku. Hizi ni ngumu kama hakuna tiba inapatikana kwa masuala haya, ni tu hadi Bwana kama kuharibika huponya au si.

Matumaini na imani yetu ni katika Mungu's hands. Asifiwe Mungu kwa baraka zake!

Aprili 26, NovaCare Rehabilitation, Westerville, OH:

Kutoka kwangu - Well today is a sad day of sorts. It is my physical therapist's last day here in Ohio. Yeye ni Daktari wa Tiba ya kimwili mwanafunzi ambaye amekuwa akifanya internship wake wa mwisho katika NovaCare katika Westerville. Baada ya leo, she will be finished and headed back to Buffalo, NY kuhitimu. Pongezi, Carrie!

NovaCare alikuwa goodbye chama kwa ajili yake jana na Shrek mandhari. Carrie alikuwa amevaa up kama punda. Kama kwa ajili yangu, the following picture will confirm what some of you have thought about me for a long time....

Aprili 20, 2013, Nyumbani:

Kutoka kwangu - Bummer... lakini nzuri, Natumaini. mbele ya mguu wangu wa kulia anahisi kama ni kuwasha. Bila shaka wakati mimi scratch ni, I don't feel a thing. But I'm hopeful that this is an indicator of feeling coming back to that area. Hata hivyo, 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 🙂

Na kwa kuwa, sisi kuja mwisho wa hadithi nyuma. Continue with Month 4>>>

Nyuma Story – CES | Mwezi 1 na Kauda Equina Mwilini

Karibu Nyuma Story.

Posts hizi itakuwa kuambukizwa up kutoka wakati mimi alishambuliwa kwa Kauda equine syndrome mpaka kuanzia blog yangu katika mwezi 4. So join me as we look back at the beginning...

Februari 25, 2013, Hospitali ya Riverside Methodist, siku ya decompression yangu upasuaji:

Kutoka kwa mke wangu, Kim - David ilishushwa na kabla op katika 5:30 asubuhi hii. Upasuaji alikuwa katika 7:30. Nje na 9:30. Wote wakaenda vizuri, lakini yeye bado ana mabaki ya ganzi katika miguu yake. Yeye hana wakiongozwa sana kila siku; maumivu ni katika a 2 (Bora zaidi kuliko kabla ya). Kesho anaona ulemavu wa mtaalamu na kama anaweza kutembea anaweza kwenda nyumbani wanasema. Lakini yeye si alikuwa bm, bado ina catheter, na walikuwa na wasiwasi na figo yake. Hivyo alikuwa ultrasound wao. Labda kesho sisi kujua zaidi. Asante sana kwa maombi yote! Anaendelea kutubariki na harakati hiyo ya kutia moyo sisi ni awestruck. Shukrani sana!

Februari 28, 2013, Hospitali ya Riverside Methodist:

Kutoka kwangu - Today should be my last in the medical side of the hospital. mpango ni kwa ajili yangu na kuanza kubwa Rehab tiba kwa misingi inpatient hapa katika hospitali. I don't have much pain, lakini bado kuna yanayoambatana na ganzi kutoka makalio yangu kwa vidole. Upande wangu wa kulia ni dhaifu kuliko wa kushoto, lakini ni uwezo wa kupata juu ya miguu yangu na kutembea 50+ miguu (Nilikuwa sijatembea mwendo wa tangu 2/11, hivyo anajisikia vizuri, hata kama ni changamoto na aliongeza kwa maumivu.)

No one knows how long for the rehab yet... Wanasema popote kutoka siku chache wiki kadhaa. Bila shaka, Mimi naweza kwenda nyumbani leo na Rehab huko, but the house isn't suited to it and I still need a good bit of help that Kim is unable to provide. Asante wote kwa sala zenu na mawazo wakati huu. Sasa sehemu ngumu huanza, na sisi bado haja sala. Sisi tuna upendo nyote!

Machi 2, 2013, Papo hapo Inpatiant Rehab Center, Hospitali ya Riverside Methodist:

Mwisho kutoka Kim Daudi - Kazi yake na tiba ya mwili vikao ni uzalishaji; wake wa chini nyuma katika nyonga bado usihuzunike yake lakini mahali pa karibu kama vibaya kama kabla ya; hamstrings ni njia pia tight na kuhitaji mazoezi ya kukaza mwendo kama ilivyo msingi wake; 6 vikao vya leo kutawanywa thruout asubuhi na alasiri masaa; alipata usingizi mzuri usiku wa jana na matumaini ya tonite kama vizuri. Mguu utulivu wake ni kubwa kikwazo sasa. Anatumia Walker & maalum choo kiti lakini ni uwezo wa kupata ndani na nje ya kitanda ok, na kutembea nusu kote kitengo cha Rehab juu ya 6 sakafu sasa. Hii yote inachukua muda. Yeye bado ni catheterized na itakuwa vizuri ndani ya wiki ijayo au zaidi kulingana na baadhi ya kibofu cha mkojo kudhibiti mtihani Jumatano. Matumbo yake ni mfunguo karibu sana sasa !! ;O Sisi hivyo kufahamu kila mtu kuomba hivyo kwa moyo na mara kwa mara kwa ajili ya kufufua. Hata kwa majaribio ya yako mwenyewe, bado kuomba. Hilo ni upendo kwa ya! Hugs kubwa kwa wote.

Machi 3, 2013, Nyumbani:

Kutoka Kim - Vizuri, it's good to have David home again! Sasa kwa ajili ya nidhamu ya kila mmoja wetu kuhakikisha yeye anapata mazoezi PT kufanyika (baadhi anafanya, baadhi mimi haja ya kufanya ili / kwa ajili yake). Yeye bado ni wasiojizuia katika maeneo yote ya, so we're keeping the Depends folks in business 🙂

Asante sana kwa ajili ya maombi, na sisi kumshukuru Mungu kwa kujibu wake katika njia yake, kwa wakati wake. David's not out of the woods yet with his walking/stability though. We'll keep y'all posted.

Mwezi yangu ya kwanza na Kauda Equina Mwilini mwisho ... Mwezi 2>>>>

CES | Mwezi 11 na Kauda Equina Mwilini

Mwezi 11 ina ndege na (kama ana mwezi 12 hivyo mbali, hivyo hii baada ya marehemu).

.lies

Mwezi 10 kumalizika kwa baadhi ya mambo mabaya yanayotokea katika maisha yangu binafsi. Haya kuendelea kwa zaidi ya mwezi 11 ikiwa ni pamoja na. I was dealing with the feelings caused by my familia member and also a friend. Mbili, kuvunjwa urafiki hurt far more. The relationship with my family member had been on a long slow descent with an abrupt, lakini short, 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, lakini imekuwa muda mrefu tangu mtu mimi uliofanyika kuwa karibu katika moyo wangu amefanya kitu kama hicho.

 

.unknowingSitaki urafiki kuvunjwa, 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; hata hivyo bila kuwa karibu kama kabla ya ... mimi nina si katika hatua katika maisha yangu ambapo mimi niko tayari uaminifu waongo wa kutosha kuwawezesha katika mzunguko yangu ya marafiki wa karibu. 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

Krismasi came and went during Month 11. We had a nice, quiet time - lakini older mimi kupata, 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 (Shukrani & Krismasi) walikuwa daima inaonyesha kubwa ambapo kila mtu kuweka juu ya mask na aliishi nje uongo kwamba sisi sote yalikuwa ya kawaida, caring family. The rest of the year told a different, sad story. I survived, lakini si bila kujeruhiwa, by getting out. 2014 alama yangu 21st mwaka wa kuishi mamia (wakati mwingine maelfu) of miles from family. If you rule out the “visits” when they were just bringing my Mom to see me, au pick yake juu, Naweza kuhesabu juu ya miguu ya upande mmoja mara ngapi familia yangu ina alitembelea mimi katika wale 21 years. I, Hata hivyo, wametembelea wao angalau mara kadhaa.

On kwa CES yangu ...

Wakati nilikuwa kutembea kama Frankenstein na hautaweza kuhisi kifundo cha mguu wangu, it seems I had such a poor gait that I tore a tendon in my right ankle. Now that I have some feeling there, Nilijua kitu kingine chochote zaidi ya maumivu ujasiri wa Kauda equine syndrome 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, lakini ni mwaka mpya, with a new insurance deductible. And of course I’m on a high deductible plan (si kwa hiari - ni mwajiri wangu inatoa wote).

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 “umeme mshtuko"Aina hisia, 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 bado ni suala kwamba inachukua mengi ya usimamizi (kwamba kibofu cha mkojo & Matumbo, si Kitanda & Kinywa).

Nimekuwa moyo, kama mwezi 11 limefungwa, na kundi dogo Kujifunza Biblia we’re doing in our home. Between that and studying for my CMA mtihani mwezi Februari, 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, Mimi kuwa wanandoa wa miradi mingine katika orodha yangu tayari, hivyo nitaendelea kukaa busy.

Je, Kauda Equina yangu Mwilini kuathiri yote haya? 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. Ndiyo, Mimi na siku mbaya, wawili kimwili na kihisia - hopefully si yote kwa wakati mmoja! 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, kunikuza, 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, lakini mimi ni yale adventure juu ya!
