    Didn't know about this, but glad to hear he's doing well. Hopefully we'll have a pint of Guinness together soon.

    i agree with you jeannie and i am glad everything worked out well for you both!! i am hoping and praying bill will do fine tomorrow with the angiogram ? he is very scared there is something else wrong because of the bad migraines he is still getting? i hope not i hope the surgery is still good and that it is just taking longer for the headaches to go away for him? needless to say i won';t be here at all tomorrow but i will be back friday sometime to let you all know what is going on ? take care all.

    bill did well with his angiogram yesterday it was a very long day we went there at 9;00 and we didn't get home until 6;30 they didn't take him for the angiogram until 1;30 or so? the surgery they did on his anurysm in january was still good and he needs no more done now. he does have one little one below where they did the surgery and another small one on the left side of his brain. they are both real small so they are just watching them he does not have to have anymore angiograms thankfully but he does have to go to his primary or a nuerologist for the migraines he is still having as dr. levy said they are not from the surgery he did in january anymore? he is very sore but resting he goes back to work on monday i am just glad it is done and he is okay?as for my health problems no news same old stuff but i do go for my emg on june 1 for the right wrist and hand fun times lol take care everyone!!

    well bill went for his post-op and the doctor said everything looks good from the surgery they did in january like i said he still has 2 tiny anuerysms that they are just watching so he will have to have another mra in a year headaches are slowly getting better with different pills but he has to take 2 of them to help? i told him once his contract is done he needs to resign from the union chairman's job he doesn't need the stress especially now? as for myself today my lawyer has to go to another hearing as aig (chartis now) wants to cut my comp. pay down to 50% again go figure? left wrist is still at 75% disabled as i still have alot of pain and it is still swollen ? but my back doctor put me at 50% disabled and my chiropractor put me at 75% so they are going by the back doctor's report? whatever!! also today i go for the emg on my right wrist which is killing me now good times i go back to the wrist doctor on the 7th. and if he tells me he can't do anything for my left wrist anymore i am telling him i am going for a second opinion i can't live like this and i can't work this way for sure even part time it hurts for me to even write now let alone type!!! ARGGGGGG!!!!

    Hey Dee, I'm sorry to hear about all of your pain, I hope everything gets better soon. I injured my knee just recently from horseback riding, my doctor said that I tore a tendon right behind my knee cap. I've never felt so much pain in my life, I might have to have surgery depending on if it gets any worse. This definitely isn't a good way to start out the summer.

    hi alicia i hope you feel better soon? take care of that knee i know how that pain is too lol i have arthritis in my right knee and just had the #1 big syndisc injection for it an dit didn't do a thing for the pain so i may have to have arthoscopic surgery on it dow the road but i have to take care of these wrists and hands first they are more important right now. so i went back to see paterson for the right wrist yesterday and he said that i have carpal tunnel and arthritis in the right wrist and hand so he tried another injection which killed again and told me to wear the brace on it all the time until i go back in 4 weeks for one more injection but he already told me he will probably have to do a tendon release and carpal tunnel surgery on the wrist which i already knew but since it is under comp still i probably won't have it done until late august will have to see what happens but at this point i need to have it fixed before it gets worse seeing as the left hand will never get better at this point> i did ask him why my left wrist is still so swollen and painful and if it will ever stop hurting ? he said probably not also said probably not to the swelling going down either so i basically said to him great i get to live the rest of my life with a claw for a left hand since my fingers are overlapping now too . if i knew now what this was gonna be like i would never have had the fusion but the doc promised me i would be better yeah right? live and learn i guess you take care alicia !!

    Hey Dee, my knee is feeling a lot better now that I have been relaxing. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said that it's healing, that's a good sign! I'm sorry to hear about your carpal tunnel and arthritis, I hope that there is something that they can do to help you. I'll be praying for you!

    well i went back to the wrist surgeon friday and seeing as i have pain and swelling still in my wrist and hand they put a cast on it for 4 weeks to see if it will help! first i am told to use it now i am told not to use it? i said to the doc shouldn't i had the cast put on after the surgery? not months after? what good is it gonna do now? just covers the pain for a while but again another summer with a cast on the left wrist and a splint on the right great!! i get the cast off july 23 and then go back to the doc for the right wrist on the 26th. for another injection they may as well put my name on a room there i am there all the time lol !!

    yeah one more week and i get this cast off the left wrist !!!! still swollen and thumb is still numb but i don't think it will ever change now? now they have to fix the carpal tunnel in the right wrist but that won't be for a while now as i am having problems with my right knee they did a mri and found a cyst as big as a quarter under my kneecap and torn cartilage so i am having arthoscopic surgery on aug. 24th. for that when i fell comp. put in for my lower back both knees and left and right wrist so it will be covered by comp. at least it better be cause i am not paying for it i never had a problem with my right knee until now?

    Hey Dee, I hope you are feeling better. I just injured myself recently, last Thursday I fractured my left ankle while horseback riding. Now I'm on crutches and have my leg all splinted up. The pain is slowly going away, but my foot looks out of proportion, I might have to have surgery, yikes!

    Yikes, Alicia!

    Hope it wasn't from a mean pony trying to rub you off his back!

    Sounds painful, w/ physical therapy in your very near future.

    Get well wishes to you!
