I was finally discharged from CTCA this afternoon! I even drove myself home for the first time. I haven’t gotten much sleep the past few days (my fault) so I was a little tired from driving, but otherwise I felt great! I met up with a couple of friends today and enjoyed the afternoon just like I would before I was diagnosed…it almost felt normal again!
I believe the next time I go back to ctca is on Wednesday for rehab and follow up appointments with each doctor. When I was discharged today, the docs increased my methadone dosage and gave me some other meds that are low grade steriods. This should help with some of the stomach issues and nausea I have been experiencing. I am hoping that this time we have the magic concauction and I can start focusing on improving my strength and stamina instead of sleeping all day.
I don’t have a caregiver for another week or so, so this will be interesting to see how my first week “on my own” goes. Wish me luck!
