@Elolith: You poor thing.  I’m sorry you’re in so much pain.  Both of my hips and knees are killing me so I can somewhat relate.  FI is so worried about me, but I keep shrugging it off.  I’ve had one bad hip/knee since I was 12.  Now it’s affecting my other leg.  Anyways, I hope you recover soon.  I can imagin you’d like to travel with Fiance when you had a chance.  (hugs)

I’m sorry.  I hope that the pain subsides and you heal very soon so you can get back to life as “normal”.  Do you have bridal magazines to look at?

Ohhh my dear @Elolith!

I’m sorry you’re going through this.  I can relate in a way because I just spent September basically bedridden while Fiance worked 12+ hour days and it was TERRIBLE.  It’s actually when I joined weddingbee, haha.  I broke my ankle at the end of August and was in constant pain due to it getting infected a couple weeks later (plus, it was broken and that damn well hurt in it’s own right!).  Our bed was in the living room, there was no door on the bathroom, and I would ride the wheelchair from the bed to the washroom and back.  Anyway, blah blah blah this isn’t about me, it’s about you.

I really am sorry you’re feeling so crappy.  Being in pain is exhausting, and not being able to go where you want is depressing.  I hope we can help keep your mind busy here on the bee….although I swear, I felt like I FINISHED the internet some days so I know it can get tiresome being online.  Feel free to PM me anytime, I’m still off work and only leave the house these days to go to physio!  Feel better soon.  πŸ™‚

@Elolith: Aw, hugs to you too!  I was playing hockey when I broke it.  Of course, I’ve been playing my whole life and have never had a problem.  I was making an awesome play (of course!) and my skate just got stuck in the ice weird.  I fell over but my skate stayed put.  It was totally gross and hurt like hell!  On the bright side, it was our final summer hockey game and we won it, thus winning the championship.  On the down side, I had to go to emerg and missed the team photo & drinks that happened afterwards. πŸ˜‰

@Elolith: That’s much worse! πŸ™  Look forward to physio on Monday, it really does help and hopefully you can get back on your feet sooner than later. πŸ™‚

I’m so sorry πŸ™ I def. know what chronic pain is and have dealt with it for a long time now. It’s hard and lonely, not to mention painful! Keep going though, take time to treat yourself to things you love with your FH if you can, movies you love, crafts or songs to listen to…. sometimes that helps me. 

It will get better!

I’m sorry you’re going through so much right now and being in pain. It seams you have a lot of support from fellow bee’s who are or have had cronic pain, including me.

I’m a breast cancer survivor. Unfortunately the chemotherapy left me with poly neuropathy (nerve damage) in my legs and live on Morphine and Oxycontin. I even had a spinal cord stimulator put in my back to block the pain. I will say it’s reduced my level of pain and the meds I take but still a daily issue. The way I look at it, I’d rather have pain in my legs than no legs at all.

I’m glad you’re here and like surfing the bee. When you’re board can you journal your thoughts? or if you get wedding ideas, make a notebook? I spent 6 months in chemo and my favorite thing to do was watch the Food Network. When I found something interesting, I would look it up and print the recipe. When I finally felt better I would get a recipe out and try it. Even though I couldn’t make it while feeling bad I used my down time to think about all the things I would do when I got better.

I wish you the best and a speedy recovery.
