Yesterday was up and down — really up and down. Yesterday began okay, as today is, with pain still well managed. When I was pulled up in bed, though, it was accompanied by jarring pain, that now encircled my lungs. And that was before I got my first regular pain med dose for the day.
The rest of the day I was miserable, although pain management started to work hours later, around 4, after taking numerous breakthrough doses. That’s the problem with pain management. You have to stay ahead of the pain, and once you start to get caught up, it takes a long time to accomplish.
The highly increased lung pain never was managed, really, until I took my midnight regular dose. But that, thank God, brought the pain under control, and I slept non-stop until this morning. Slept well, and got up in a positive mood.
