2019-02-13 Living with Cancer – Day 709

Other health-related issues were dizziness and stomach cramps that came every so often.

Today was not a good day nor a bad day. For most of the day I had to deal with stomach cramps, dizziness and sweating.

2019-02-01 Living with Cancer – Day 697

Today was a very bad day, normally it is the Saturday and Sunday after Wednesday’s Chemo Day. It started off OK with me taking my stomach and dizziness pills in the early morning. However, after getting up at 08:00 I had some light stomach cramps and encountered some Dizziness. After getting downstairs and having a light breakfast, the dizziness and cramps got strong, in addition I started to sweat.

Today was a bad day. On the positive side, I woke up with no dizziness. However, on the negative side, my stomach queasiness turned in to cramps every so often. In addition both of my hips experienced bone pain all day long. There is not much more to report, I just could not shake the stomach problems. In addition, I also had some lightheadedness. In summary, not a good day.

2018-08-12 Recovery Day 524

Today was another good day with a repeat of an unexpected complication. This morning after getting up, I suddenly got very dizzy and my stomach got queasy. A repeat of what happened 2 days ago, but today there was no Fentanyl patch change day. So the possible link may not be the reason for both complications. I took immediately Zofran and Meclizine which got it under control. After having just a slice of toast I was ready for my morning walk with Dianne.
