FRANK’S THIRD PROGRESS REPORT
July 1999 through December 1999
Cavitation surgery was something to which I was not looking forward, but I was not particularly worried. I had had very good luck with my teeth throughout my life, and this procedure was no exception. It was the second of four sites that needed surgery, all of the locations where I had had my wisdom teeth removed. Both prior to and after the procedure, I was seen by a Naturopath who tested (Neural Kinesiology) me for not only which site was the priority but what remedies would be most effective in my recovery. Also during this month I met with the medical intuitive and had two acupuncture treatments to help deal with healing from my cavitation surgery. My fatigue persists, and I am increasingly moody.
Once again I had successful cavitation surgery. I also consulted with the medical intuitive and had two acupuncture treatments to facilitate healing of the surgical site. With all of the remedies I have been taking, I am still operating largely on faith that I will improve. My joint pain, particularly my shoulders, persists as does my troublesome lower back. My inability to deal with everyday stress is most troubling and my energy level really fluctuates.
Again, I consulted with the medical intuitive and had two acupuncture treatments to help my surgical site heal. Unfortunately, this time it wasn’t healing well; puss was coming from the site. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic to help. After a trip to a health care provider, I usually have to spend two or more days recovering from the exhaustion. I sleep well during the night and take naps, but they all too frequently seem to have little impact.
Unfortunately, the cavitation site infection persisted, in spite of the antibiotic as well as the advice from the medical intuitive and two more acupuncture treatments.
The dentist tried to clean out the surgical site without hurting me too much. (The local anesthetic would not block the pain.) Once again I consulted with my doctor and the medical intuitive. And I had two more acupuncture treatments, again to no avail; the infection persisted. My night sweats dramatically increased in intensity and frequency. I perspired so much I not only had to sleep in a separate bed from my wife but twice changed the beach towels on which I was lying, they became so wet.
Revisiting the surgical site was not a pleasant experience. In that a local anesthesia would not work, my dentist recommended, and I concurred, that the best way to proceed was to dig out the site in its entirety. This time the dentist would follow my pain pathways in the area to excise the infection. Needless to say, it was painful, but not nearly as painful as the crown of thorns procedure. (See my First Progress Report: September.) This time, and with two visits to the acupuncturist and my doctor, the site healed. I also visited the medical intuitive who observed me shaking sporadically. She stated that it was my Kundalini activating. My intense night sweats persist.
