I guess I overdid it with walking & light housework in my quest to get better. I had shooting pain down my leg from knee down to foot. I was having severe muscle cramps that would take my breath away. Went into Drs office crying & very frustrated. I knew I would have pain but this was unbearable. I also resumed nausea, vomiting due to pain. Zofran is a great med for that by the way. Anyhow they gave me lidicaine/marcaine injection in my knee & its amazing. Its 90% better. It only lasts 6 hrs. Too bad could'nt get them all the time. I am sooo happy to get some relief. I must admit even The NP was puzzled about the pain but after the shot she said it confirmed I overdid it. Funny cause I feel like I barely did anything but its a fine line between doing enough & too much. This is just taking so much longer than I planned. I really need to return to work & the thought that I can't terrifies me that I am actually getting chest pain. I beginning to feel bi-polar with the mood swings which are regulated by my pain level.Its so nice to have this support group & people that get it. I wish you all well & pray for you all in hoping you have as many pain free days as possible! Hugs, Laura

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
