2019-03-16 Living with Cancer – Day 740

Today was another good day that started with no dizziness or stomach issues which lasted that way all day. I did encounter some shoulder and hip pains, but those were triggered by activities, such as sitting too long in the car or restaurant or walking a long way with only a cane, not my two walking sticks. For my hip pain, I took Tylenol Arthritis which lowered the hip pain. Overall it was a good day.

2019-03-15 Living with Cancer – Day 739

Today was another good day almost identical to yesterday. Getting downstairs after getting dressed, it took only a few minutes that I started to sweat again. However, it was a light sweat that only lasted about 30 minutes. For the rest of the day, I only had minor pain on my shoulders. For my hip pain, I took Tylenol Arthritis which seemed to have lowered the pain, I will have to keep track of it too if it really is helping. Today no dizziness nor stomach issues. Again, this may have been due to me taking the medication for it at 05:00 in the morning.

2019-03-14 Living with Cancer – Day 738

Today was a good day I got up at 8:00 and after getting dressed a few minutes later on my way downstairs I started sweating again. I was now told that the sweating is a side effect to the Pomalyst (chemo drug) that affect 5-8 % of the MM patients. The sweating lasted this time for a full hour, which was great since I started my walk minutes later. For the rest of the day, I only had minor pain on my shoulders. For my hip pain, I tried Tylenol Arthritis, it seemed to have lowered the pain. Since 1 sample is too little, I will try it for a few more days. Today no dizziness nor stomach issues. Again, this may have been due to me took the medication for it at 05:00 in the morning.
