Running on Zofran

As you may remember a few months ago I started to run. My new year's resolution was to run a 5K or at least start training for one. It took till February to start out on that goal but I did, and I was even doing well for a while. Then that nasty infection hit right after spring break. I tried to keep running but it didn't go so well. I had to create a no running within 48 hours of vomiting rule. Yeah that is a thing.

Well almost 2 months had gone by and between my schedule and regular vomiting and dehydration I hadn't been on a run. Since I had to stop taking sulfazalazine I had notice more stiffness in my joints and decided I needed to go for a run. I started to prehydrate with some Gatorade. I went about 1.25 mile and felt good.

Two days later I had a final in the afternoon and was feeling stiff so I decided to go on another run. I had a light breakfast in anticipation and once again prehydrated. Right before I hit the 1.25 mile make I stated puking. Just how I wanted to end my run. I held off on the post run selfie.

I decided I would wait two weeks till my next endoscopy to run again. Well that was yesterday but we need to wait for the biopsy results before we know anything. I decided not to wait to run. This morning I took a Zofran, drank some Gatorade and less than a mere 24 hours after waking up from anesthesia I was off. I ran 1.26 miles including my fast mile yet. I also was about to see CHOP from my run. No post run vomit either!

Why the ACA (aka Obamacare) Matters

This may be the only place I refrain from talking about politics, which my friends and family can vouch for as most of them are very close to unfriending me on Facebook due to my seemingly never ending post on Facebook about the current political happenings. One reason I am taking to my blog right now is because my blog is all about my health and my health is now being effected by politics. Both in the most immediate sense of how stressed I am and the toll it has taken on my body (PT the day after the election was rough to put it mildly) and the more theoretical looming idea of the possibility of the Affordable Care Act being repealed.

There are so many ways I have benefited from the ACA. Quite honestly it is the reason I currently have health insurance and as an extension of that, healthcare. Fist off my parents are self employed therefore we purchased our health insurance off the exchange (and this year I will have my own exchange plan so I have one in PA). Next off this semester du…

Left Hip Scope Surgery and Day 1 Post Op

I am home from the hospital from hip surgery number two! I probably wouldn't of stayed over night except my surgery wasn't till 3:30 pm.

The big discussion pre-op was what kind of anesthesia I should get because I got a spinal headache from the spinal block last time. My OS was still adamant that he thought I should avoid the general. I was also really scared about the general because I had been told it meant I would need to be intubated which I did not want.

When I talked to the anesthesiologist he had a very different take on the situation, he said I had a very high risk of getting a spinal headache again because I am above normal height, I am a teenage girl, and I had a spinal headache four months ago. He said if I had a general I may have of miserable night, but that would be compared to three or four miserable days if I got a spinal headache. He also used an IV only version of the anesthesia instead of gas which reduces nausea, plus the fact I do not get nausea from pain…

RA Warrior is doing a blog carnival about non-medical things that help ease some pain or make life a little easier. I have a few golden product so I have decided to participate.


I probably could not function without my Sun Beam Heat Pad. Most nights I can not choose which joint to use it on first. When I got it last year to calm muscle spasms after knee surgery I did not know how much I would use it. There is even a pad inside that you can dampen so you can use it for moist heat. I got it from Wal-Mart and I don't think it was even $15.
This Teavana Tumbler is actually my favorite thing ever. I use it everyday for both tea and coffee. Even before I had problems with my hands I have always been a naturally clumsy person, and leaky travel mugs might hold up for most but for me they have always been a recipe for disaster. Now throw in a pair of crutches to that equation, as I had to for three months last year, and I needed help to carry the travel mugs, because in my bag they would l…
