Medical procedures and prescriptions

Another thing to add to the list of medical procedures. Early next month, they are scheduling me for a procedure on my left arm to try to loosen it up a bit more and relieve some of the pain. I won't be awake for the procedure, it will be outpatient.

In other news, the solution I was prescribed to drink the day before my scheduled barium enema on the 16th of THIS month was on "backorder" at the Brookshire's pharmacy, so I took the prescription with me when I went to my orthopedic appointment this morning, and got it at the hospital pharmacy. The pharmacist there also said it was on backorder, but they still had some. First medicine in a while that wasn't covered fully by Medicaid. Cost me $20. Guess the doctor who ordered the enema didn't know the stuff he prescribed was in short supply everywhere.
