I apologize for the delay in my updates but it’s been rough
It all started with last week’s infection had doubled my throat pain. so I increased my pain medication, when the pain subsided i simply quit taking my oxy, which threw me into almost a weeks worth of withdrawal symptoms i didn’t realize that stopping my medication was causing me to have shakes, cold chills, vomiting among other things it finally dawned on me on weds what i was experiencing. so since then i have been weaning myself off of the oxy ( I was on up to 120mg daily). It was odd to be in a room without ac wearing thermos long sleeve shirt wool scarf and a heating pad. I’m glad that is mostly behind me.
Some good news, I have been cleared to eat! yay My tongue ulcers are shrinking and i was able to take 5 small spoonfuls of apple sauce today, it’s very odd to learn how to eat again. It’s a slow process but i look forward to eating full meals again.
I have been depressed because my recovery has been slow and no fun, so my NP prescribed me some anti-depressant medication, which I started to take but since I started I’ve been hit with extreme fatigue like I never experienced so I decided to quit taking it (I hope the fatigue goes away.
I’m getting my voice back slowly but with the thrush i don’t want to talk or eat
