Pain & Relief

On Friday my backside was SO sore. Holy Cow!!! After five hours seated in the car, two fingers and then a scope? Yeah, I believe I was a little sore. I took some pain killers - four times - all within the prescription guidelines. Oh, how sweet when that pain finally went away.

Today I feel...well, okay. Still sore. I am staying on my back as much as I possibly can including during meals. Tomorrow the recliner will arrive. Thursday's arrival day was pushed back to Sunday. Hopefully this chair will provide the comfort I am looking for. I am so excited about the possibility of being reasonably comfortable. At this point, reasonably works for me.

I am pleased to tell you that the fissure is about healed. Sitz baths, soap, water and calendula ointment seem to do me alright. Yeah, boy!!! Gotta love when the pain goes away.


  1. Glad to hear you're feeling some relief! It's got to be very stressful, feeling pain (or at least discomfort) for such prolonged periods. Hope the recliner will be like settling into a puffy cloud...!

  2. Robert - I haven't stopped by in a little while...just checking in with your blog. You and your family continue to be in my prayers.
    Has the recliner come yet? Hope you love it!
    cheers - Liz
