Today was a so-so day, starting with me getting up at 8:00. In addition to some light dizziness, I encountered some light sweat as well. The sweating increased as I got ready for my morning walk. By the time I went out to start my walk with Dean, both the dizziness and sweating subsided. Getting back home I was suddenly overcome by my shoulder and lower hip pains to the point the I almost took a Dilaudid. I decided to wait an hour to see if the pain got lower or not. It turned out that I fell asleep waking up at noon with the pain at a very low level. For the rest of the day, I had only a light shoulder and lower back pain. For my hip pain, I took Tylenol Arthritis which lowered the hip pain.

2019-03-15 Living with Cancer – Day 739

Today was another good day almost identical to yesterday. Getting downstairs after getting dressed, it took only a few minutes that I started to sweat again. However, it was a light sweat that only lasted about 30 minutes. For the rest of the day, I only had minor pain on my shoulders. For my hip pain, I took Tylenol Arthritis which seemed to have lowered the pain, I will have to keep track of it too if it really is helping. Today no dizziness nor stomach issues.

2019-03-13 Living with Cancer – Day 737

Today was a good day with many challenges. For starters I had to get up very early 6:30, so that Denise could drop me off before 7:30 at the cancer center for my PET/CT. The challenges were to lie still for a number of scan session. Doing so, lying on my back where all my pain points take a bit of doing. However, I made it without the need to redo any scan. Getting back home, I started to feel the various spots that I was lying on, all that I was able to do was resting, which did feel good.
