I have changed the title of my postings as well as the Blog Title from Road to Recovery to Living with Cancer. The reason being is that the cancer I have, Multiple Myeloma (MM), has no cure. All that can be done is to treat the cancer and hope to achieve remission.
Today was yet another so-so day, I again slept until 9:00 and woke up with a sore throat which was less severe as it was yesterday. However, around 3:30 AM I had to get up quickly as I needed to vomit.
Back to getting up this morning; I went downstairs to have a light breakfast. Checking my temperature it showed being somewhat high. Taking some Tylenol brought the temperature down. As to my shoulder and lower back pain, it still was there. With all my ailments I stayed inside resting for the day, getting up every so often.

Today was a so-so day, with the shoulder and lower back pain being the only issues for most of the day. Like yesterday the shoulder and back pain levels did not drop, but instead, they increased when being active. Resting helped to get the level back to an acceptable level. The good news, today, during the sitting in the theater, there was no jumpiness in my left leg, nor an increase in my pain levels because of the seat restrictions.
Today was another good day, health-wise the shoulder and lower back pain is the only issues for most of the day. Normally when walking my shoulder pain level drops, but not today, instead it increased. However, my back pain was hardly notable. During my sitting in the theater, my left leg was jumpy for about 20 minutes.
Today was another good day, again with the shoulder and lower back pain being the only health-related issues for most of day. Interesting enough, since today was a very windy day, which extended my walk this morning by 20 minutes because of the head-on gusts at 20+ mph, only my lower back pain increased. Again, resting help lowering the pain levels for both pain locations.
Today was a good day, with the shoulder and lower back pain being the only health-related issues for most of the day. Interesting enough, since I forgot my cane on our shopping trip, walking around without one, especially in the stores, was not as bad as I had envisioned. Yes, it did increase my lower back pain, but not my shoulder pain, therefore limiting my walking time just a tiny bit.
Today was another so-so day, with some new health-related issue I mentioned yesterday. It seems that with the suspension of my Pomalyst chemotherapy, taken a pill daily for 21 days, in lieu of undergoing Radiation therapy, may have caused some new masses to develop that are the root of the new pain location. We will know more next week when I have my monthly all-day Darzalex chemo treatment.
Today was a better day, with some new health-related issue. For the last few days, my lower back would, after standing or walking for a bit, be in some pain. After resting it would go away. However, today it would not go away, staying pain all day. Further, all of a sudden my left shoulder joint is starting to be in pain. Being Christmas Eve, I rested for most of the day. Hopefully, the resting will help to keep the pain down for the next few days.
Today was another so-so day, with some health-related issue. However, the issues were different from yesterday. For starters, waking up my stomach did not play too well. I delayed getting up for a bit of time which helped. After getting up the other issue surfaced, which was mostly about pain in my hips and left leg. I kept the pain to a minimum resting for most of the day.
