After seeing the wound care doctor, it was too painful for me to allow them to touch my finger and care for me, so I began my own wound care at home and I bought Iodosorb, Mepilex Bandages, and Medipore Tape from the website www.allegromedical.com for a fraction of the cost.
It was hard to get a doctor, let alone one, to prescribe the Tracleer medicine, as it wasn’t a medicine the Rheumatologists here were familiar with. I was able to continue the Tracleer as it was prescribed from my Rheumatologist in Wichita, KS and covered under Pathways Insurance.
In September, I had a bad fall and bruised my tailbone. The joint pain continued and it was harder to get out of bed. My pelvis had to be readjusted with several adjustments by Dr. Eric Ehle and acupuncture was done to help with the healing.
Once I was done with the IV supplementation, my body was warm and I was tired for about 2 days after the IV Therapy.
