33 days till hearing and mult new health issues
« on: January 04, 2017, 10:51:09 PM »
I have 33 days until my hearing. I quests in 45 min 32 days and counting.  My attorney is trying to calm my nerves because of an onslot of new medical issues.  I know my stress is playing a role in some of this. In my lawyers words the ALJ I have been assigned is the one every lawyer prays for he has a 89% approval rates and she has known him be his wife for years and he is one of the kindest man and very very fair. That's awesome, but still stressing out.

So since I found out my dire need was granted on my hearing I have suffered one issue after another.  The week after Thanksgiving I developed cellulitis again I spent a week going to the doctor for daily Rocephen injections. I had also contracted a bad URI.  The weekend I finished the Rocrphen I had a massive hermitage in my left eye I was out of town for all of this which made it even more fun.  I saw a retinal specialist where I am at and my vision was slightly better than 20/100. The doctor also noticed I have a capsulationnon my right lense post cateract removal. So this doctor wanted to try Avastin injections which I asked my old doctor about and he wasn't into using that. So I talked to my attorney and she told me if I wanted to try the Avastin to do it despite it being in another state. The hope with the Avastin is preventing abnormal blood vessel growth. The drug has had amazing results. So last Fri I had my first treatment. It was minor discomfort, but my vision started clearing quickly.  I have another treatment in a month.

If this wasn't enough between the other two events I managed to fracture my right foot. Since my sensation is so deminished I had no clue other than minor discomfort in the arch. The X-ray at my ref scheduled podiatry appt showed he hairline fracture was about two weeks old, but it gets worse. The X-ray showed I had developed Charcots in my right foot. This can lead to sever deformity in the foot and affect my ambulation even more. So now I am in a removable cast for the next few months. I have to go get biweekly X-rays. The good part is my condition is in the inflamatory stage with a descent chance of resolving with minimal damage.

The next thing was a massive infection in my mouth and I had to have three teeth extracted and once again be on more antibiotics. So my A1C sucks it went from a 6.8 to 7.5 which is really high for me.  When I am on antibiotics my blood sugar is whacked out it either goes thru the roof or plumits.  It has done both. This caused two episodes of being unresponsive and needing glucagon.

I just need this nightmare that will be 2 months shy of 3 years to be over. This is no way to live. It is bad enough to have health problems that prevent you from living your life and doing the things you love to have the added stress of government beuracracy to fight.
No matter what happens in life try to smile and beleive every thing will be ok!!!  Then smile vs cry!!!!   😅😅😅😅😂

God damn! Sorry all that stuff happened to you recently! Do you take metformin to lower your a1c levels?

Anyways, it sounds like you should have a slam dunk with all your conditions.

Atticus - metformin is only used for Type 2 diabetes.  Sassypaws15 has Type 1 diabetes & needs to take insulin to lower her A1C  levels.
