2018-06-15 Recovery Day 466

Today was a good day. The day started without any signs of dizziness or nausea, and the pain level in my shoulder was at normal level. After breakfast and taking my medication I started watching the end of the World Cups game, Egypt vs Uruguay. After that I did my morning walk with Dean. The walk did not result in any increased in my shoulder or back pain. The rest of the day the pain levels stayed were they were at the start of the day.

2018-06-10 Recovery Day 461

For starters today was not a good day. Getting up there were no signs of dizziness or nausea. However, there was pain everywhere, upper and lower back, hip, knee and foot joints. In the past walking would help lowering the pain, not today. Trying to rest did not help. In addition to the pain, I would have stomach pains every once in awhile.

2018-06-06 Recovery Day 457

Today was a all-day treatment day, starting at 9:00 and goes to a bit after 4:00 (09:00/16:00+). started off where the pain left me last night and all night. My day started with no signs of dizziness or nausea in the morning. I had my breakfast early and took my medication shortly after, so that I could pack up my stuff (laptop, cords , power adapters, etc). The only pain/stiffness I had was around my upper back (shoulder blades) which is something I have every day day.

2018-05-24 Recovery Day 444

Health-wise things were not good from the start, I had **NO* sleep all night, the best was about an hour of cat nap with the help of listening to some music from my iPod Nano. The problem not getting any sleep started around 9:00 PM, my normal time to turn the TV off and fall asleep within the next 30 minutes. Last night I keep awake because of some leg spasms starting below the shoulder blade and ending just above the knee bone. The spasms lasted about a minute only to repeat shortly after. Neither Tylenol and later Dilaudid did do nothing to help slow down or stop the spasms.

2018-05-20 Recovery Day 440

Health-wise finally a change, I had a good night sleep, however, I woke up with dizziness. I took the medication for it, but it took some time for the medication to do its job. I also had strong pain in both of my hips. I had a light breakfast before taking my morning medication. I took two Tylenol in preparation for my morning walk. The dizziness was gone just in time for my walk, all that was left was the hip pain.

2018-05-17 Recovery Day 437

Health-wise nothing new, it seems we have reached a stable point in my treatment; good night sleep, getting up with no dizziness and good vitals. All this allows me to have a good breakfast and taking my morning medication. Between finishing breakfast and starting my morning walk with Dean, I processed my mail and sorted out some of my files in preparation for a switch in my cloud storage provider. Today’s walk took about 1 hour, without any increase in back tightness and no pain.
