So here it is February 6th, and what's new? Not much, really except I fell back the middle of December, and the shoulder pain was just getting worse. Not cancer related though, I just did some some damage. Got a steroid shot last week, and it helps somewhat. Also, started visiting a chiropractor because I had hip pain, again to determined to be not cancer related... just out of place. On my first visit, he put put me on the "drop table" and wham... Several times. And the pain was cut in half. Amazing!
So, I'm sort of freaking out the oncologist because I ain't dead yet. I figure this is because none of my metastases have been to vital organs, mostly just subcutaneous. Ugly, and occasionally painful, but certainly surviveable. As to the stent, we've sort of reached a compromise only I keep losing weight. I'm down to 187 lbs. Were I healthy, this would be cause for rejoicing. but as an EC victim, not so good, eh? My biggest problem is vomiting. It passes the stent, makes it into the stomach, where it sits for 3 or 4 hours, and then, whooops...
Still, my wife and I go into town for lunch or dinner almost every day. Soup or chili, or something that'll pass through the stent. But I'm out of the house, and that helps.
Love to you all, and that's the news from Lake Mosesbegone...
