All smiles post-appointment!
Spinal Cord Stimulator trial surgery appointment is booked and ready to go! I’m doing it, you guys!
Hopefully this will mean less medicine, less ketamine infusions (can I get a hallelujah on that one?!), and eventually saying goodbye to my chronic pain and my Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD) in at least the lower extremities of my body (this first implant will only cover the bottom half, but I have the option of putting another one in).
I have to admit that at the start of my battle with CRPS/RSD, the negativity that I encountered and felt within myself, made me feel as though one day saying goodbye to my wretched chronic pain was a totally implausible dream.
However, though my pain has now spread and has the potential to maybe sometimes be at its worst… as I’ve stumbled along the twists and turns of my journey, I’ve ended up right where I need to be. And one of the greatest lessons that I’ve learned along the way, is that positive visualization is everything.
So, cheers in advance! Here’s to a successful decision!
