By Friday, I was feeling better, just can't shake the fatigue. I did force myself on the treadmill and walked a mile.
Yesterday, Sunday, was a pretty good day, too. Went to Mass and actually ate a
Sub sandwich and it tasted really good!
Unfortunately, by the evening, I had some really bad low back pain. I am guessing it was from the Neulasta shot which helps boost white blood cell count. They said I might get pain, but I thought it would be within a day or two, not five days later! I tried a heating pad, walking on the treadmill, and aspercreme with no relief at all. Finally took a muscle relaxer, Xanax and a lidocaine patch. It was pretty bad pain. Happy to say, it was all but gone by this morning. I actually felt pretty good today, even well enough to vacuum. I know I'll be sorry for taking that chore back from Scott!
So, overall, I'm just takin one day at a time, and dealing with whatever crosses my path. The oncologist said this week might actually be worse than last week, but I'm hoping for the best!
I'm supposed to start physical therapy on Friday, so hopefully I will be fine for that. The PT is mainly to strengthen the upper extremities that were weakened from surgery. Hopefully it will only be one or two sessions... I really don't need to add another trip to Reno!
As always, thank you all for your continued love, support and prayers. You have no idea how much it means to me- really!
