Ok so procedure went well. I could feel the versed kick in but I felt "fine"...I just felt relaxed. No paradoxical reaction. somewhere in there came the fentanyl and next thing I knew I was waking up.
Apparently I was just silly/loopy with my comments on the way home. I slept for a good hour at home after.

As I write this the swelling and discomfort is starting to kick in, but for now I feel calm. So I'm so grateful for this. Already this is a better experience than last time. But I know to wait a few days till my body has totally rid itself of the meds to be super sure of how this went.

Interestingly, when discussing this with my neurologist last month, trying to problem solve together, his answer was to have a benzo one time with the other meds bc it would counteract the hyperasthesia from other meds.  I hated the thought of it, but I'm starting to wonder if he was right.
Its kind of like when addicts know that if they've had too much say cocaine, if they have a couple drinks it will counteract it and visa versa.

So for now its apple sauce and ice packs:) Thanks for the support on here! I'll keep you guys posted!!  :smitten: :smitten:

Trina - you made my day!  So happy to hear the actual experience went well! 

Very interesting perspective from your neurologist.  We are so fearful about ever having a benzo again that perhaps they do have utility in those very few circumstances.  And perhaps you have healed enough to be tolerant of the meds. 

You deserve to have a break from all the hell.  I wish you a peaceful recovery.

This is wonderful news, Trina, and a strong sign that your CNS is much less fragile.  I am noticing also that I am much less sensitive to foods and stress, and am not having any allergic reactions to pollen, mold and mildew and pet dander.  And, blessedly, no more benzo flu for quite a while.  Even my eyes are brighter and whiter!  We are in the same time frame of 25/26 months and I think we are nearing the finish line!

Let's keep on keeping on!

Hugs,  GG
