Today I experienced quite a lot of pain in my back. It started as a mild ache, but quickly progressed into a deep, throbbing pressure that consumed my entire lower back and pelvic bone area. Dr. Uberti said that this might occur around the time the stem cells begin to engraft. I had no idea that the pain would be so intense.
This pain progressed after my family left. I am still in a great deal of pain and because of it; this might be the shorted post, to date. It's hard to gather my thoughts and type when my pain (now, well beyond a 10) is, literally, the only thing I can think about.
So like my son said when the discomfort first started this afternoon, "Pain is weakness leaving the body." I say weakness get out of here, I have no use for you. Strength is only thing allowed in this little body.
