Surgery - the Pains and Rewards

It’s been a few

Making of Cowabunga Corner Season 3

Cowabunga Corner Season 3 was a total blast to make!  I cannot thank everyone enough for all the time they put into it.  This season was the first time where we had almost as many interviews as we did reviews, which did really surprise me as that was not something I thought was going to ever happen.

RSD Update

Many people have been asking me how things have been since my surgery, what I’ve gone through, and just how much of a difference it has made.  I’m at the point where I’m ready to share the last few months of my life and just what a wonderful thing these doctors have done for me.

A Much Needed Update

First off, I want to apologize for Cowabunga Corner’s website being quiet for so long.  On November 18th, I went through surgery for my RSD, with a follow up surgery on December 12th.  Since that time I’ve been healing and going through the Holiday rush and I’m just now getting some time to look back at the last few months.  During this time, I was able to keep up with all new episodes of Cowabunga Corner on YouTube and the Facebook page.  The actual website is the only area that I could not bring myself to update, though I did try.

Thanks Everyone

Life has been hard this last week, waking up daily with little to no sleep as I rely on pain killers to just help get through the day.  For those who don't know, I went through a surgery on November 18th. This is the surgery I've been waiting for since 2008 to help with the pain caused by RSD, read about RSD here.  Though the first part of the surgery has taken place, they were not able to finish. I will have to go back in for a smaller surgery to finish what they need to do.  In the meantime, I’m still in my normal pain though now it is coupled with the pain from the surgery.

RSD and Me

RSD - Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome

I’m writing this story to help get awareness out there for something that I have lived with for six years now. RSD, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, is very painful and debilitating disorder. Someone just touching a person who has RSD can cause pain to that person with the slightest touch to the area where the RSD is affecting the person. For me, it’s my right arm. Here is my story, one I’ve told thousands of times in the last six years.
