2018-12-25 Recovery Day 659

Today was another so-so day, with some new health-related issue I mentioned yesterday. It seems that with the suspension of my Pomalyst chemotherapy, taken a pill daily for 21 days, in lieu of undergoing Radiation therapy, may have caused some new masses to develop that are the root of the new pain location. We will know more next week when I have my monthly all-day Darzalex chemo treatment.

2018-12-14 Recovery Day 648

Today was another good day. Health-wise there was no issue, my stomach is cooperating again. My shoulder pain/discomfort was not noticeable. BTW, it is more of a discomfort than pain. It is hard to describe what I mean with discomfort, all I know, it is not pain. No need to stick to white rice with applesauce for breakfast and lunch. I was less active today to ensure not to overdue it, which normally ends up with my system crashing.

2018-12-10 Recovery Day 644

Today was another bad day. Health-wise the day was almost a repeat of yesterday, my stomach just would not cooperate. However, unlike yesterday, I went to see my Oncology doctor hoping to see if she would know what to do to help my current situation. For starters, she ordered that I get some hydration immediately. In addition, she prescribed some medication to help with my stomach problems. I spend the next few hours getting hydrated before Dianne took me back home.

2018-12-08 Recovery Day 642

Today was a very bad day. Health-wise the day started with me having to throw up at 4:00 in the morning. From there, things went downhill. To make a long story short, I spend the rest of the day either resting or sleeping. My system just shut down, not because of pain, just the feeling of stomach discomfort, all day long.

2018-12-07 Recovery Day 641

Today was another so-so day. Health-wise the day started a bit late as I fell asleep around 7:30 the time I had planned to get up. Instead, I got up an hour later with a temperature of 98.4F, some dizziness and stomach fluffiness. Both symptoms stayed around for most the day. My temperature changed very little, low around 97.5F and a high of 98.6F, during the day. As to my pain/discomfort locations, nothing different, shoulder blades and lower back. The level was very low when resting, but when I started to move it caused a big discomfort.
