2018-01-20 Recovery Day 320

Today was a so-so day, weather-wise it was sunny but cold. Health-wise, not much has changed the shoulder and back pains are still there, specially at the end of my walks. The day started of good, I walked with Dean in the morning and went out shopping with Dianne before lunch. Things turned bad for awhile after lunch.

Shortly after lunch my left shoulder joint started to hurt. It was bone pain, a side effect from the Zometa infusion on Thursday. The pain lasted for about 2 hours, I tried to lower the pain with heat and Tylenol, it did not help much. I spend the rest of the day relaxing in my recliner hoping that the pain would not come back. It worked for a few hours, but around dinner time the pain started to slowing come back. I applied heat to it immediately which helped to keep the pain at a low level. After dinner the pain was almost gone, good enough to stay up a bit longer before retiring for the day.

There is not much more to report. In summary, today was not a good day.
