2019-03-25 Living with Cancer – Day 749

Another so-so day, starting with me getting up at 8:00 to have breakfast and get ready for my morning walk. Right from the start, I had to deal with heavy sweating and dizziness, that would not subside. By the time I started my walk, I also had to deal with shoulder and hip pains which stayed around for most of the day. The only health-related good news was that the sweating and dizziness has disappeared.

In summary, I had to deal all day with my shoulder and lower back pains.

I am still not having a good day. Like the past few days, I am dealing all day with the standard symptoms, with randomly phases at a higher for a while, especially the dizziness and stomach aches. For now, all I can do is take my medication and rest, giving my system all the time to recuperate.

2018-11-04 Recovery Day 608

Today was another good day! Again, health-wise things were what I call normal for now. I had some early stomach cramps in the morning, leftover side effects of the Dilaudid I had taken a few days ago. The good news, with Dilaudid cycle, almost gone away, things are now 99% back to normal. As to my shoulder pain, it is stable, staying at an acceptable level, which I can lower if needed with some Tylenol. No other health-related issues have been showing up such as ankle and/or hip pains.

Today was a good day, that did not start off too well. Getting up I encountered stomach queasiness that lasted for a few hours. However, I had no dizziness or back pain. I did have all day some on and off bone pain in my right side, hip and knee. However, overall it was a good day even with limited issues in the morning. This is the third day after my full-day treatment and in the past, Saturday and Sunday were really bad days. Today was nothing like it was in the past.

2018-05-06 Recovery Day 426

Weather-wise nothing new to report, still in the same pattern which should stay that way for this coming week. Health-wise it was a bad start. I did not sleep from 3 O’Clock on. I did not wanted to get up, but I did bite the bullet and did it. I was overcome with dizziness which I got control of with Zofran, but because I took at the time I got up it took some time before it started to do its job. My breakfast was a safe one, dry toast and tea.
