Hello everyone out there in blogger land! Well, I had a productive day at UW. I saw a radiologist about getting a port. If you have been keeping up with my blog you know how much my veins suck and PICCs are becoming very difficult. A friend on CF2 told me about power ports. They are rated to take higher pressure so you can receive injections that need to go in fast, like CT contrast. As I seem to get CTs pretty regularly these days I was all for this idea!! The radiologist was ok with it as well. Hopefully I'll be getting this scheduled tomorrow and have the placement next week!
I also saw my rhuem doc. I bitched about my fibromyalgia not chilling out since going off the antibiotics last month. We upped my evening dose to 150 mg. I told him that I really don't think I'll ever be able to go off the meds. He kind of has a wait and see attitude, but I'm pretty firm in my belief that me and lyrica will be friends for a looooooooong time.
