Today I had a doctor’s appointment. I initially made it to get a thyroid panel done, but after my ER visit last week, it was also a follow up.
I got blood drawn, peed in a cup, and got a referral for physical therapy.
I have my first PT appointment next week and I’m super excited to get some core strength back once and for all!
My back is finally feeling MUCH better today. I took a walk with Emmie today and didn’t have a flare up. I’m off all my pain meds but Ibuprofen 800. I’ll probably scale back to regular Ibuprofen tomorrow. Tomorrow morning is my last dose of steroids too. They give me weird anxious energy, and they killed my breast milk supply, so I’m happy to be finished.
So now I wait. For thyroid results and to start PT. In the meantime, I’m going to try my hardest to stick to my meal plan (nothing extreme, just well portioned, home cooked meals) and take daily 30 minute walks.
It’s a start.
