2018-01-11 Recovery Day 311

Another great day, weather-wise the day started with fog once gone the sun came through the light cloud cover. Before my morning walk I had a FaceTime call with Paul. We had not talked for awhile therefore it was good to catch up. Today’s morning walk, with Gary, was better then yesterday thanks to the sun. After the walk I had a FaceTime session with Ray.

2017-12-31 Recovery Day 300

Today is not only the last day of 2017, it is also the 300th day since being told that I have MM cancer. Today was a good day with a small hiccup in the morning. In the morning, out of nowhere I suddenly had strong pain in my left shoulder (rotator cuff) for about an hour. After the pain was gone all that I was left with was the my shoulder pain.

2017-12-30 Recovery Day 299

It is becoming more difficult to write these daily updates. The reason is a simple one, the last 12 days are almost all identical. They are all good days with the only pain being that of my shoulder. As to my medical status there is no change. Even with the start of my maintenance treatment, taking Revlimid, chemo drug in pill form, every day.

2017-12-29 Recovery Day 298

Here we go, another good day! Yes, I still have to deal with the shoulder pain, the result of the surgery, which is acceptable for now. There is also the hip pain which is either the side effect from the Zometa or Revlimid. For now it is difficult to determine which one it is since we started the maintenance cycle less then two weeks ago.

2017-12-28 Recovery Day 297

Another good day even with some pain. Pain wise it seems to be a copy of yesterday. So far it is to difficult to determine if the hip pain is a side effect from the Zometa or Revlimid. It is my guess we need at least 2 more treatment cycles before we can determine with some certainty which of the two are responsive for the hip pain.

2017-12-27 Recovery Day 296

Another good day even with some pain. In addition to the pain of my shoulder, I have had pain in both of my hips. I had this pain at a very low level for the last few days, but did not mention it since did not bother me. The question arises is the hip pain a side effect and if so from the Zometa or Revlimid.

2017-11-30 Recovery Day 269

Today was good day on two fronts. The day started early as we departed for UCSF MC at 05:45. We arrived at UCSF at 8:00, just in time for our 8:30 registration. My back pain did not increase too much and decreased quickly for the rest of my stay at UCSF.

2017-11-28 Recovery Day 267

Today was another so-so day. Like yesterday, the day started of fine, but after my morning walk the back pain level increased more then usual. Resting for awhile and taken two Tylenol bought the level back down. However, after returning from short car ride to drop-off a lawnmower my stomach acted up a bit. I laid down for an hour which helped with my stomach. Like yesterday I did not go for my afternoon walk to give my system time to recover.
