Well, I’ve spent the afternoon and most of the evening in my chair, and my pain has been greatly improved. In addition, the dramatic worsening that happens every night between 21.00 and 21.30 simply didn’t happen (though it’s setting in now, at almost midnight). For the second day in succession I’ve got by on two shots of Oramorph. Yesterday that was a major battle, today it wasn’t.
Obviously two days means little in concrete terms, but it’s looking promising.
At the moment, I’m trying to figure out a way to get my manual chair in the bedroom so that, in the morning I can transfer from bed to chair, hopefully bypassing the savage outbreak of pain that comes with every new day. As there are already two powerchairs and a Class 3 scooter in there, I doubt there’s room. Room can certainly be made, with a lot of work but, right now, it’s pretty tight..
Still, progress has been made, the pain demons are in retreat (hopefully!), and more might be achieved tomorrow.
