    Hi Layla The pain is getting worse and there is now swelling laterally in my leg. Have been to see my OS who has ordered Ultrasound and Xrays which I'm having today. What a nuisance this is. I was hoping that pain would ease off by the 7th month, but hasn't at all and I still can't walk...

    :ice:Hi Josephine, Thank you so much for your kind reply. I will stop the Ibuprofen and try Tylenol as you suggest. I will pull back on the house and yard work. It is always difficult when you move into a new home as you want to do things, but I guess I'm going to have to take it easy for a...

    Hi Jamey Rest and ice does help a tiny bit, but I find I would have to stay in bed all day to get any benefit, but as soon as I get up and move around again, the pain comes back. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks Layla for your very compassionate reply and wise counsel. It is surely food for thought and believe me I’ve got enough time on my hands for thought nowadays. I do understand what you and Jaycey are saying and it all makes sense. I just can’t see myself ever doing what I used to do...

    Thanks so much Mojo . Yes, I’ve been thinking about others who have a permanent disability and will not recover. I can hardly even imagine how they must feel and I am thankful to God that my situation will improve given time. But at the moment, I’m feeling like I’m never going to be able to do...

    Hi Layla Thanks again for your good advice and wonderful caring nature. Yes I think for me it’s just going to take time. The thing that I just can’t get used to is not being able to do everything. I was an extremely active person before all my illnesses struck and I had just completed...
