2017-07-18 Recovery Day 134

Getting up this morning I felt none of the upper leg/buttocks, foot pain and shoulder-back-shoulder surgery pains. By the time I got downstairs and had helped with the breakfast my shoulder-back-shoulder pains were back again. Since I had a 9:00 Physical Therapy session, I rested in my recliner to reduce the pain level.

The Physical Therapy session turned out to be a good one. I got answers to my questions and modifications, alternate way, to two of my exercises. Most of the time was spend applying deep soft tissue mobilization on my shoulder-back-shoulder area to loosen up my muscles. It really works, sadly only for a few hours.

2017-07-16 Recovery Day 132

Getting up this morning was no different from the last two days, I still feel a bit of the upper leg/buttocks and foot pain, but by the time I get downstairs they are almost gone. As to my shoulder-back-shoulder surgery pain they were barely notable. Since it is Sunday, we, Dianne, Denise and I decided to go to the local café for breakfast. Getting back home, I decided to provide Dianne company during her garden work by staying outside in my garden Lounge Chair. Around lunch time it got to about 100F signaling that it was time to go inside.

Like yesterday, I am trying to figure out what to write. The day followed the emerging pattern for the mornings.

All that was notable present was my shoulder-back-shoulder surgery pain that stayed that way all day. Being Saturday, Dianne and I got up early to go to the local bakery-café to get breakfast as take out. This was the second time that I went out other then the cancer center or hospital.

2017-07-14 Recovery Day 130

Sitting here trying to figure out what to write, has become difficult the last 5 days since a pattern has emerged. The mornings up to lunch have become the same. The afternoons to evenings are a bit different, depending on the weekday. Monday and Tuesday are chemo days, the rest of the week are regular non-chemo days. Two of those days I have PT at the local hospital. Things will changed after this cycle is over, but that is 3 weeks away.

2017-07-12 Recovery Day 128

Today turned out to be like yesterday; good. For starters, like yesterday getting up I felt the upper leg/buttocks and foot pain, but by the time I was downstairs for breakfast they were almost gone. All that was notable present was my shoulder-back-shoulder surgery pain. As it turns out it stayed that way all morning, giving me time to to continue catching up with work I was not able to do the last few days. In between I had my FaceTime call with Ray.
