Intolerable levels of pain last night, and experiencing mild improvement today. We’ve been told that cortisone shots can take up to three days to kick in. And even then, he will likely need the series of three for max results. When I talk about Nicks pain, I’m referring to his tailbone area; his coccyx. Strange that he didn’t actually break this, but it’s what hurts the most. It’s why he still cannot sit up for any extended period of time without having to lay down. It’s why he is still on Percocet several times a day. If his damn tailbone didn’t hurt constantly, the entire picture of our current daily life would be much different. But for now we continue seeking the solution. Therapy, learning to stand and walk, massage, swimming, stretching, acupuncture, sleeping on a better mattress, changing his diet and supplements, cold laser therapy, detoxing, colloidal silver, using a special air cushion on his wheelchair and seeing a pain specialist. We are trying it all, but we’re still open to suggestions.
