2018-02-19 Recovery Day 350

Today was a better day then yesterday. Like yesterday, after getting up I noticed dizziness and lightheadedness. I took the medication for it so that I could eat my breakfast and go for my morning walk with Dean. Returning back home I spend the rest of the morning in my office going through year old papers to determine which ones no longer are needed to be kept. I stopped around lunch since this activity increased my back pain and I needed to rest.

2018-02-18 Recovery Day 349

Today was another so-so day. Like yesterday, after getting up I noticed dizziness and lightheadedness. I took the medication for it so that I could eat my breakfast and go with Dianne and Denise as planned to IKEA. Being a long weekend and Sunday the traffic was very light. The trip to IKEA was mainly for Denise since she needed a few things for work that only IKEA has. I just went for the walk along, yes walk, since walking through IKEA is almost as long as my morning walk.

Today was a so-so day. After getting up I noticed dizziness and lightheadedness. I took the medication for it which seemed to work. Dianne and I went for breakfast at Denny’s followed afterwards with a stop at Trader Joe’s before returning home. Being back home my dizziness and lightheadedness came back. I decided to relax in order to control the dizziness and lightheadedness. It worked. Around 11:00 Dennis Petitpas came by for a visit. We talked about photography and other technologies.

2018-02-14 Recovery Day 345

Today was a good day. After breakfast Dean drove me to the local Cancer Treatment center for my 3rd chemo infusion. This time I did not overcome with spasms (sudden involuntary contraction of a group of muscles). As to the back pain, it was back at the normal level for most of the day, but after getting home for dinner the level increased a bit. Taking two Tylenol took care of it.

2018-02-11 Recovery Day 342

Today was again a good day. Day started with a good breakfast followers a bit later with Dianne joining me for my morning walk. For the first time in almost 2 months I took some breakthrough medication (Dilaudid) this morning because my back pain was at a high level. Interesting enough the breakthrough medication did not bring the pain level down, something I was afraid of but had to confirm. The reason I stop taking breakthrough medication was that it did not help with my surgery back pain.
