2019-02-27 Living with Cancer Day 723

Today was very bad day. I decided last night to continue with taking Dilaudid every 3 hours starting at 9:00 PM. After 3:00 AM most of my pain was gone, except my pain in my shoulder area, which hurt when I turned in my bed. I got up early at 7:00 since I needed to be ready at 8:30 for Dean to take me to the Cancer Center. However, getting dressed was rather painful as suddenly like yesterday all my pain points got active the more I moved. It was so bad That I was not sure I wanted to the Cancer Center for Treatment. I decided to go hoping that at least my resting during the all-day treatment would help.

Today was another good day, which was not as good as yesterday’s, but I am not complaining. Still dealing with stomach cramps, sweat, and dizziness.

Next week is treatment week, I will have to tell them about it and see what options are available to get this under better control.
