Back to Studly

Today we hope Studly Doright gets some relief from his agonizing sciatic pain. It’s been 24 days now since he’s gotten more than 30 minutes of sleep at a time.

Studly is a man’s man, but when he’s in pain, all bets are off. After both of his knee replacement surgeries I was ready to trade him in for a less abrasive model. It didn’t help that he had a persecution complex and severe paranoia brought on by the pain meds he was on. He accused me of posting his post-surgical photos on Facebook! I promise, I never even considered doing such a thing. Well, it might’ve crossed my mind, but I wouldn’t have done it without his permission. They were seriously grotesque.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised that he’s kept his sense of humor and his sunny disposition throughout this whole sciatica ordeal. He hasn’t taken a day off work even when I thought he should have, and he’s cracked a few jokes during even his worst moments. Some of the jokes might have been amusing, so I laughed just in case.

But today, we see a pain management specialist. Hoping our prayers will be answered because, all kidding aside, I hate seeing my Studly Doright in pain. He’s my rock, you know. Positive vibes appreciated.

Peace, people.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about another sufferer, but I’m glad to report a good, comprehensive pain management team set me back to right from what sounds similar. It took time, commitment and patience and was well worth the while. Prayers for strength and healing for you both.

  2. Oh dear!! Hope this will work!! I feel him!! I’ve been dealing with the same thing now for ten years!! Some days I just can’t even walk!!! It’s been acting up pretty bad lately. In the past I’ve seen the chiropractor and went to physical therapy. I don’t want surgery!!!! Scary!!! Would like to know how this works out for him. Is this a combination of drugs, therapy??

    1. I’m not sure who this is—just says “Someone”, but the injection was done under a very mild anesthesia, he says he never felt even a bit groggy, and I believe it’s a steroid shot with perhaps other medications directly into the L4-L5 area.
