Katie says: Wowzers, mom has been to the doctor and in desperation because of the pain in her lowest back to a chiropractor as well for the first time in her life. Two times there, but the second time she almost could not make it to the car for the pain.
Now, it is Mommy here: It is not the practitioner's fault. This is more a medical doctor problem right now rather than adjustments and etc. They were very kind in the office I chose and down the road, I will return while I am healthy to try to prevent problems. But for now..I went back to the doctor and to my first physical therapy. Ultra sound, stretching and moist heat (OH that was surprisingly nice!) with electrical stim pads on my back.
I came home and for a good 5 hours I felt better. Lots of pain but not at practically a 1level 10 the way it was for a week. More like 8. The timing of the pain med was changed too, to one every 4 hours or 5 hrs if I could wait, instead of the 2 pills I had when I rose at 6 and 2 more when I went to bed at 11. That was 16+ hours between doses and I was in agony. SO, the plan is I go back 3 times a week for a while to see what happens. No one knows if it's sciatica or not but it may not be if the therapy helped that much for awhile. I have taken enough space on her bloggie. But and thanks for the chance to say what's happening. PLEASE help the helpless and innocent. AND tell other cat parents to spay and neuter their pets!
KITTIES! WOOFIES!! She's a hog for taking all that space. It's National Feral Cat Day. Thank heaven she got us back here to SAY so. Sheesh. She hired someone to go to the grocery store for us...man, mom can't walk 25 feet without doubling over and complaining as though the world was crashing! I'm tired of it and I hope to pity sake she gets better. I have to have my brushies on the dining table! My human sisfur will come over wif Sticky One next Tuesday and take me to get my lethal claws cut off and THREE! COUNT 'EM...THREE MATS cut out. Where's good help when you need it? It sure ain't here! I think I'll scratch her. Right now! *reaches out arm*
Bye. We're finished complaining. Maybe. xxoo
