2018-09-24 Recovery Day 567

UPDATE for 2018-09-23:

I filed yesterday’s report noting that there was no health-related issue. Since that report was uploaded before going to bed, it does not include the issue encounter afterwards, which was that within 10 minutes of going to bed I encounter stomach issues resulting in the need to vomit like never before, it was violent for about 5 minutes. It all settled after about 30 minutes. This morning, things are back to normal.


Today was another excellent day, with no dizziness, stomach problems, bone or back pain. I had activity-wise a rather busy day with only my shoulder pain/discomfort being raised a bit. There was no need to rest or take any painkiller such as Tylenol. I did stop around 4:00 PM (16:00) with those activities.

2018-09-23 Recovery Day 566

Another excellent day, with no dizziness, stomach problems, bone or back pain. One may argue that I have reached the end of the road to recovery now that I have so many excellent days. It is not that simple since full recovery would mean as a minimum that I can do all my physical activities without any restrictions or pain. For now, and the last 566 days that has not been the case, nor will it in the near future, therefore I am still on the road to recovery.

2018-09-22 Recovery Day 565

Today was another excellent day, no dizziness, stomach problems, or bone or back pain getting up this morning. For most of the day, I had no real pain issues. The reason for using the term real is that I was very active in my office, which caused some discomfort with my shoulder, something I knew would happen, and is not something that will go away soon. It is my choice to do nothing, no shoulder discomfort, or do something resulting in a discomfort that is within the limits I accept.

2018-09-21 Recovery Day 564

Today was a excellent day, no dizziness, stomach problems, or bone or back pain getting up this morning. I start to sound like a broken record. Finally, the days of possible side effects from the treatment 10 days ago are over, this time it lasted 3 extra days. This coming Wednesday I will go back on the Pomalyst (Chemo Pill) to deal with another set of side effects.

2018-09-20 Recovery Day 563

Today was a good day, until the evening. No dizziness, stomach problems, or bone or back pain getting up this morning. No health related issues related to the treatment during the day which was a good sign that the side effects from the treatment day seem to be over, especially those from the Zometa. However as the evening approaches my shoulder pain acted up, this time no Tylenol helped, only rest did.

2018-09-19 Recovery Day 562

Today was a good day. No dizziness, stomach problems, or bone pain getting up this morning. I did have some back pain at the start of the day, which I controlled with Tylenol. No health-related issues during the day which was a good sign that the side effects from the treatment day seem to be over, especially those from the Zometa.
