Rebecca's feet are a little swollen!!!!

This is how Rebecca's feet/legs are! She elevates them as much as she can. It's very painful to walk around like that!!!

She has a doctor appointment next Monday, October 13th, in Miami to talk to the doctor regarding the spinal cord stimulator. We will update it as soon as we find out what's next!

Oh Rebecca!! I am so sorry you are having to experience that part of RSD.... I know that is so difficult to walk on as well as very painful!! I completely remember those days when mine did that exact same thing and worse!

Thank you for sharing a picture of your swelling with us all. That is such an awesomely giving thing for you to do, and I for one completely appreciate you taking the time and effort to post it!!

I have the SCS and have loved it!! It hasn't been 100% or anything, but I didn't expect it would be. It is about 25-30% relief, which is pretty good since it is up against Fibro, Osteo, and MS also....LOL.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for your doctor to accept you as a perfect candidate for the SCS and can get you in soon!!

Please keep us updated on how things are going for you!

~God Bless~

Aye, I HATE it when my feet are like that!!!
Besides how it feels, just looking at it freaks you out.
It's like a giant disconnect in the brain- This can't REALLY be happening!!!
