I feel like a freakin' yo-yo
On Monday my doc filled me from 4cc to 5cc which, though it sounded good at the time, worried me that it was a lot at one time (even though I had been at 5.2 for a number of months). I believe if he had eased me up like I THOUGHT was happening (i.e. if I was at 4.6 like he thought when I went in last instead of at 4), it wouldn't have been an issue. But almost from the start, I could feel the swelling from a full cc fill this high up the cc scale.
So all week I've been taking children's liquid ibuprofen for the swelling, and I broke out the Protonix and Nexium for the evening reflux. Unfortunately, last night I PBed on bean soup for over two hours, and last night's reflux was worse than it had been all week and I literally had to sleep sitting up.
Which means it's back to the doc today for a partial unfill (which I HOPE won't be too much so that we can get this thing back on track). The good news is I haven't been hungry, but since I'm a self-pay, I'm a bit tired of not having the fill we think I do. I appreciate him trying to help out and do so much at once, but obviously it was TOO much. And thankfully I don't get charged for unfills. I'm just ready to level out so I don't have to deal with this crap. :(
