I have my knee of course which should be replaced by the end of the year. I wear a brace but there's always pain there. Cortisone shot last fall did nothing.
The lapband port site is sore / uncomfortable every night. I have an appointment May 31. He has tried a cortisone shot but that did nothing at all. I am hoping his next step will be to talk about it coming out. He said inflammation in the site is rare after this long a time. I hate to drive all the way to Moncton but gotta do what I gotta do.
Both arms have been tingly / achey since September. I wonder if it could be related to lap band inflammation since they happened around the same time? Doc says postural, maybe a pinched nerve but I've had 13 chiro and my 5th physio is today. Also dealing with a bum shoulder - probably tendonitis.
On the computer and teaching too much for either to heal - or all of them - but that's part of my life.
Like you, have tried about everything - Toradol, Celebrex, Tylenol, acupuncture, massage, heat, ice, TENS machine, Salon Pas almost daily, can't afford Biofreeze but other mentholatums.
Thanks for caring Paula - it's ongoing but lately I'm just getting so tired of the pain that I can't handle it. There HAS TO BE something to help me!
