2019-01-18 Living with Cancer – Day 683

Today was another so-so day, which seems to be for now a routine day. Taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) around 3:00 to 4:00 AM as a preventive measure seems to be working very well. However I still have to deal with the sweating side effect, flushing the radiation toxin when being a bit active. There is no real trigger, the one I can repeat is walking up the stairs, however, my morning walk does not always trigger it. I may sweat during the walk, or at the end, but there are as many days I don’t sweat during my morning walk or at the end. I have not been able to identify a sure repeatable pattern.

2019-01-17 Living with Cancer – Day 682

Today was another so-so day, I continued with yesterday’s new text on taking my Zofran (Stomach) and Meclizine (Dizziness) at 4:00 AM as a preventive measure. It has worked today as well, day two of the new text. As with yesterday, I had to deal with sweating without having been active. And as to my Shoulder and Lower Back discomfort/Pain, it started to show up after I returned home from my morning walk and stayed active until for most of the rest of the day.

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.

2018-12-07 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.

2018-03-31 Recovery Day 390

Today was a very good day. It started with sleeping in and after getting up having a good breakfast. Normally I don’t walk on the weekend with Dean, instead one of my family members joins me. Today for personal reasons I asked Dean to join me. We had a really good walk thanks to the nice weather. Health-wise I had no issues, I was not sure because of yesterday’s immunization shoots, if there would be some side effects – All was good!

2018-03-23 Recovery Day 382

Today was a so-so day. Like yesterday, the day started of with a good breakfast followed by checking my vitals. Today I was walking alone since Dean had an early morning appointment. The weather was very good, not to hot or cold, just right with a blue sky. There were no back pain issues walking, which was great. Getting back home I prepared my lunch for the get-together with Larry, Bill and Suzan.

2018-03-22 Recovery Day 381

Today was a good day. The day started of with a good breakfast followed by checking my vitals. Since this is my first day after yesterday’s treatment, I will have to watch for new side effect. As to my morning walk, it was still raining an hour before, but by 9:00 it had finally stopped enough for Dean and I to walked as we do every weekday.
