I am stronger, but I don't have any more energy or stamina than I did before I started cardiac rehab. My son says to give it time; that all my hard work will kick in soon. I surely do hope he is right.
Here goes another whine session. If I get any other thing wrong with me I will give up. I hurt my right shoulder getting out of bed last week and it is very sore. On my lower back, near my spine, I have a sebaceous cyst that got swollen and inflamed last week. When I sat down on one of the machines I use at rehab, my back hit the seat back and it felt as if I was being stabbed in that cyst. Two days later, I was bruised all around the cyst, and it was still swollen and tender. I called my dermatologist to make an appointment and found out that she had left that practice - which made me sad. So I saw her partner, who has put me on antibiotics for 2 weeks. Additionally, my cardiac scar is forming a keloid, and is red and swollen. I am to use an OTC creme on that 2 x per day - and it is not cheap.
I have had sciatica for about 4 weeks now, with lower back pain and muscle spasms. My right heel is still plagued with Achilles tendonitis, although it is better than it has been for the last 2 years. Do you understand my frustration? Sheeesh. Give me a break, please. Sorry for all the whining, but someone asked for an update and this is the easiest place to do it.
