Today is the 2nd Kyprolis IV treatment for cycle 4 week 3, next week will be my off (rest) week. Waking up this morning I had no pain anywhere. That changed a bit after getting up and ready for going downstairs, the back pain, Shoulder-back-shoulder, became noticeable. BTW, this is what I call surgery pain, because it is where all the metal, etc., is located and it is not as much as a pain but more of a discomfort and is present all day. Resting and sleep will reduce it more than any ice pack.
Since today is Monday, we are starting 3rd treatment week of cycle 4. But before doing so in the afternoon, I started after getting up with Breakfast. Shortly after breakfast I started not feeling good, I could not put my finger on the cause. I check my temperature, it was not a fever. I decided to go upstairs to get some rest hoping it would help before the Home Care Nurse visit.
It was pointed out to me that I did not provide the details what the spine surgeon said about my progress. I am sorry for forgetting to provide this important information. So here we go, it will be short posting (addendum) with the outcome of my checkup with my spine surgeon.
First the good news, the surgery went well, I can move my feet and toes, move my arms, fingers and thumbs, in summery everything that moved before still does, and which did not does not. The report from the assistant surgeon was that they fixed twice the number of compressions that they had identified needed to be fixed. My spine was in a mess, no wonder all that pain.
