Shingles has been I intersting....a little painful but not enough to slow me down much. I got them on my lower back/left side & that's where most of the pain was. The pain traveled down my hip I to my thigh & knee. I still get some pain at night, but for the most particular feel good during the day.
They immediately put me on an antiviral(Valtrex) which helped get control of the virus before it spread all over my left side. They also put me on a prednisone spike of a 40mg week taper. Yesterday was the last day of those. So for the most part I think we knocked out the shingles in a week :)I'm so happy!!
Yesterday I recieveived my license in the mail so I can legally work as a nail tech. I'm still working on getting my home salon ready. I painted more yesterday & today I'm going to get some vinyl lettering & decor put up.
My life post transplant is so amazing! I've done things I have dreamed about doing my whole life. My Donor and I have been on many great adventures together and I hope she is proud of how I've cared for and lived with her gift of life. I'm coming up on my 6 year transplant anniversary in just over 3 months, that's such a miracle!!!
