    Oh No (Post Mastectomy Pain Syndrome and LE): I woke up with severe PMPS on 1/11/11 after my BMX with sentinel node and 1 axially node removed. I have had extensive pain treatments since the summer of 2011 at a pain clinic; have had and still have to some extent severe scar tissue adhesions; and finally got the dianoses of LE in October 2012 (after living with it for about a year).
    My pain is so bad it prevents me from living normally even after 2.5 years.

    Hi Angellinda! We aren't too far from each other are we? I hope everything is going well for you. I think we could use a few days without rain right now and nice temps in the 70s right? Our mosquitos are huge this year and so man and so aggressive.

      We're behind. I can't do much anymore! But Gary plants 5 acres. Of corn, tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, pickles, watermelon, cantaloupe, zucchini, callas, bee balm, smoke plant, angel trumpets lilies, and we do many different Morning glory gardens. The pink one shown is slow growing. I get if I'm lucky one Bloom!! My other ones I get hundreds. But my one arbor was just undone that was a woodshed. Since we have zero income. We can't do more then we do now. I Love life, gardens, flowers and anything that grows!! Etc.. Deer come & eat too much!! So Gary is trying to fence it off. Its always a struggle to get anything.. Best of Luck to you in everything! Living out in the secluded country. I feel very alone, lonely, sad, depressed and all. I have to try to get any wellness & relief from this endless, nonstop Pain!! Sending my care to you!! Thank You for your gift of time!!
