2019-02-07 Living with Cancer – Day 703

Today was again not a good day, but a better day. For the most part, today was a repeat of the last five days, dealing with stomach cramps, dizziness, sweating and lack of concentration. After breakfast I rested until the outside temperature was about 40F, it was 34F earlier this morning. As to my health issues, for most of the day, I had light stomach cramps and dizziness, sweating after strong activities and, a lack of concentration.

2019-01-19 Living with Cancer – Day 684

Today was a GOOD day, which is also called a so-so day and has become our routine day. Talking about routine, taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) around 3:00 to 4:00 AM as a preventive measure is working very well. However, I still have to deal with the sweating side effect, flushing the radiation toxin when being a bit active.

2019-01-14 Living with Cancer – Day 679

Today was another so-so day, starting with me sleeping in until 9:00. For most of the day, I had to deal with some earlier discomfort such as Stomach and Dizziness issues. However, thanks to the medication I had taken as a precaution around 6:00 AM the discomfort was kept at a minimum, allowing me to have a light breakfast and later a good lunch. Not being very active I also started to encounter lower back pain in the late afternoon. I tried walking it off with a short walk together with Dean, but no change, I, therefore, rested for the rest of the afternoon and evening.

During my sitting in the theater, my left leg was jumpy for about 20 minutes.

2018-12-26 Recovery Day 660

Today was a good day, with the shoulder and lower back pain being the only health-related issues for most of the day. Interesting enough, since I forgot my cane on our shopping trip, walking around without one, especially in the stores, was not as bad as I had envisioned. Yes, it did increase my lower back pain, but not my shoulder pain, therefore limiting my walking time just a tiny bit.
