So last appt. the doc decided I did need hyperbaric after all. Though the surgery site is not infected or bad looking, I tentatively agreed to try it bc I know how quickly things like that can go south. At the same time, I can't help wondering if he is suggesting in part for the money. They have three chambers but there seems to be only one guy doing it at present...
I went in Thursday, did a ton of paperwork and prep and was there a total of five hours!Sorry to say I hated every minute of it. For periods I had to lay still and that was kind of triggering for me. Afterwards, I burst into tears . I told them I didn't think I could do it. The rest of the day I had a headache and was very tired. I have yet to talk in rt with the doctor as we criss crossed on the phone yesterday. He has a very stern/mean side which scares me. I feel like such a failure and am scared of the repercussions of my decision. Depression and desperation was back yesterday as a result.
I feel like the quality of my life would be bad for the duration of the treatment. And I just barely survived another long, rainy winter.
Yesterday I took note of how I use my left leg and foot and,i ndeed, things would be SO much harder without!
