Visit Fred Hammond’s Facebook page for updates on his progress.
Fred Hammond recently posted a SocialCam video about the chronic pain he’s been dealing with for over 10 years.
Update: Ok family I’m just leaving my check up, and always there’s good news and bad news.
Bad news: unfortunately I’m not a candidate for the procedure.
Good news: all my deep Veins in my leg are are flowing and circulating as they should with not one bad deep vein. and the med to small veins are not at an alarm level. They said I could treat’m but no guarantee this would make a diff.
They really couldn’t find anything.
So they said I could try some stockings… Lol
I’m put’n em right own!!!
I think i’ll see a muscular specialist next.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
It’s 3:34 am friday the 18th of january and in a few hours around 10:30am I’m going to have a procedure done on my legs to see if I’m a candidate to have another procedure to relieve and correct the chronic pain I’ve been living with for over 10 years.
This issue is hereditary and was passed on me so I’m praying I’m a candidate.
To walk, stand for any length of time has been excruciating, especially on stage or a pulpit for over an hour, by the time i finish BLESSED I almost need a wheelchair but I got waaaay to much pride for that lol. Or the things most take for granted like a walk through hood or the Sub or park, jogging, Grocery shopping ( and yes I still do it sometime), or getting out of low chair, riding in a car for more then 15 min, or walk from concourse to concourse in an airport. and STEPS… are the enemy.
I know folks have said “you need to loose weight and you’ll feel better”, but like I said its passed down from my previous generation, because after close to 70lbs weight loss the pain is still almost unbearable.
And here’s another emotionally painful point. As much as I’m a musician/singer I am/was an equally talented athlete. And to not be able to run up and down the court with my son is… Well the heartbreak is indescribable.
At 15 he’s gifted with the rock, but I know even at 52 I’d shake his shoes left then right then BOOM… BOTTOMS!! Lol.
Let’s keep him in prayer family!
