Lumpy and Bumpy - The Tetralogy And now, my left hand. After a single comes a sequel. After a sequel, comes a trilogy. I didn't know what came after a trilogy, I had to Google it for myself. After a trilogy, a tetralogy. A Tetralogy is a four-part series, and considering this ganglion cyst saga… Continue reading My Ganglion Cyst – The Tetralogy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Since I already wrote about my Rib Plating Surgery, this blog will focus on my Crohn's Disease. Expect a blog focusing on my ganglion cyst and hand troubles to follow.

To catch you up, I have mentioned many times before that… Continue reading Perianal Abscess #2 in My Crohn’s Disease Journey | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

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 the coming days, I will be trying to catch… Continue reading Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

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

Entyvio Infusion #6 – The Last | It Could Be Worse Blog

Since my last post, Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018, posted around two weeks ago, like always, a lot has seemed to happen. I've been sick. I've called off work but I've also worked my ass off. I’ve had snow days and freezing nights. I've seen doctors. And more doctors. And more doctors. People in my life have… Continue reading Entyvio Infusion #6 – The Last | It Could Be Worse Blog
