Hazel here today
to tell you about the pain in my neck.
I am not talking about Mabel
I look pretty happy in the above picture but
I have not been feeling that happy lately
I have been experiencing some pain in my neck area
Two rounds of prednisone did not get me better.
It made me feel better but
as soon as we backed the dosage off the pain returned.
Tuesday I had xrays done
and it seems I have a collapsed disc area
The best we can do is to manage the pain as best we can
so for now I will take prednisone and gabapentin.
If I get feeling really good we will reduce the prednisone and see how it goes. My dogtor would like it if I could just take the gabapentin (if it helps me) and only take the prednisone if I have a bad flareup. The goal is to keep me comfortable on the least amount of meds.
The hardest part is keeping me and Mabel from playing too hard. Our favorite thing to do is grab each others necks and shake but Mom & Dad won't let us do that anymore
Other than that I am fine -
I am at a good weight - 14.8 lbs
so no diet necessary thank goodness!
