Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

I suppose I will just continue where I left off in my last blog, My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy, where I talked about my thoracic rib appointments. In that blog, I didn't necessarily discuss anything but thoracic issues. The rest, well, is just as chaotic. In the coming days, I will be trying to catch… Continue reading Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Thoracic Thoracic seems to be another clinic that I frequent. I have suffered from rib pain for about a year now. Sudden onset of pain, with two major areas of focus on my left side. We are not 100% certain that these pains are related or not. Because there is so much to cover in… Continue reading My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Lumpy, the Ganglion Cyst, a Trilogy

Since this blog began a few years ago, I've always suffered hand pains and within the last year, I have had a ganglion cyst develop. I fell on my hands in January of 2016 and ended up tearing a ligament in my left hand. This tear went unnoticed, I thought nothing of the bruising and… Continue reading Lumpy, the Ganglion Cyst, a Trilogy

No Luck of the Irish for Me

Its been another few weeks, but I didn't necessarily want to post back to back since my Crohn's disease anniversary blog came just days after my last full post, Always Another Appointment. And then, of course, Saturdays post happened - Getting Hopes Up To Be Let Down - and I couldn't focus on this post… Continue reading No Luck of the Irish for Me

2 Year Anniversary of Crohn’s Diagnosis Day | It Could Be Worse Blog

It's been 2 years! I believe in celebrating milestones, whether good or bad, and today marks my 2-year anniversary of my Crohn's disease diagnosis. I was given a gift, a curse, a problem but no cure. Tomorrow, my beloved St. Patrick's Day, is my 2-year Crohn's diagnosis anniversary and I'm still in the same position… Continue reading 2 Year Anniversary of Crohn’s Diagnosis Day | It Could Be Worse Blog

Always Another Appointment | It Could Be Worse Blog

Damn. Another two weeks have gone by since my February post, with a few more appointments and doctor visits, and even more new consultations added. With my Crohn's disease journey, I've not felt any different having started the Stelara. I had my follow-up with GI, Dr. S, this past week, and I got to explain everything to… Continue reading Always Another Appointment | It Could Be Worse Blog
