Surgery update

Its kind of depressing for me lately. I see all my friends are going off to college and I have to stay behind. I know its the logical choice its just a bummer because id rather be off to college with my friends. The healing from my surgery is really slow. Its still really sore. Im glad to have it out already because i dont need to take the galbladder pill anymore. That pill tasted so nasty. Glad to be rid of it.

Througout my illness i have been faced with many choices. It still doesnt make deciding on a major decision any easier. Ive been given the option to either go to school this up coming semester or take the semester off to go to rehab. Although i really really really want to go to school based on how things are playing out in my life right now, ive decided to take the semester off. I am still waiting to hear if the rehab facility will accept my case..fingers crossed. Only time will tell if i made te right decision. It would be nice to be able to get on my feet thoug. That would make missing the semester worth it.

Yesterday I went to visit doctor katz to get an ivig treatment despite the reaction I had. We changed the brand and pumped me up with pleanty of antihistimine and steroid. Everything went ok, my throat only seized up twice. For now I no longer have the luxery of being able to get home infusions due to the high risk of anaphylaxis. I desparately need treatment so Im willing to drive up to connecticut weekly if i have to. i  would do anything to get well.

update 8/5/12

This week has been pretty eventful. I met with the surgeon and got a date for my surgery. I really cant wait until the operation because the symptoms suck right now.I am also stuck on a diet limiting what i can and cant eat even more. On wednesday I will go up to connecticut to see Dr.Katz. I am looking forward to my appointment with him. On monday i will go to the hospital to have some presurgery testing done as well as an anesthesia consultation. Hopefully, everything goes well. On friday i met with a new doctor. Doctor Bransfield. He is another doctor with a large amount of experience with lyme disease. He put me on a few new meds. Hopefully they will help.I liked him he was very nice.
