I need your advice. My Darling husband and I are going to Bonnaroo in a couple of weeks and are terribly excited. Here’s the problem. I’ve done all the cancer treatments and everything and they’ve been finished for over a year now. I’m taking my Femara as prescribed but it has come with a couple of side effects. My docs agree that since the tendinitis in both of my wrists and the fasciitis in both of my feet started approximately one month after I started the Femara that it is likely the cause. I’ll be finishing OT this week for the tendinitis and I am the poster child for OT. Yippee!!! The work that they did and taught me to do brought me back to pre Femara days.
The feet however, are a different story. I am seeing a podiatrist and will have orthotics made next week. I am receiving cortisone shots and the next round will be next week as well. I can walk, and do on a regular basis. I don’t need a handicap placard or anything to go to the grocery store but much more than a mile and I’m a hurting unit. Bonnaroo includes camping and you don’t know where your campsite will be assigned until you get there. It could be as close as 3/5 of a mile to nearly 3 miles (one way) from your campsite to the concerts.
I know my doctor would write up anything that I need to get a temporary placard and camp in the handicap accessible site which are 3/5 of a mile. I am completely torn. I’ve not used my illness to my own benefit, nor do I consider myself to have a disability but I fear I might if I try to hike 6 miles a day, minimum.
What do you think? What should I do, take my chances with random assigned camping or plan to go into handicap accessible and get the documentation that I need?
