Forgive my long absence, things have been so hectic. I finally was able to have my one year check up with a surgeon, and she thinks that I probably have pouchitis. If I do, this has probably been going on untreated for six or seven months. That's going by the joint pain I've had that my primary care doctor has diagnosed as Fibromyalgia.
However this morning I was awake due to this pain being unbearable and I did just a little scratching at the surface so to speak, and found that all of my symptoms match for pouchitis. The surgeon I saw prescribed antibiotics, however I haven't been able to pick them up because of a mix up and missing paperwork at the Social Security office and my health insurance lapsed. So I can't pick up the pills.
Is there ANYTHING I can do to ease these symptoms until I can get things straightened out with Medicare and pick up my medicine? This is really becoming ridiculously painful all up my spine and shoulders and pelvis area. Ibuprofen doesn't work anymore and I'm at a bit of a loss.
