Fractured wrist.   image

I'll take the NED and run with it running around emoticon  .

Will have to work on getting my cholesterol down with diet, as I am allergic to all Statins. 

And my wrist is braced and hopefully will heal soon. They think it was caused because the bones have been damaged by Chemo. Not surprised!

So, all in all, I would say a good day.

    What happened? Did you have

    What happened? Did you have an accident? Good news on the cancer front.

    Not totally sure...

    but I think it happened while doing push-ups.  My Doctor told me that the bones can become brittle due to chemo, and easily fractured or broken. I didn't feel anything until I woke up with wrist pain. 

    The x-ray also showed a healed fracture in the same wrist. I have no knowledge of any injury. Interesting, to say the least.

    Wonderful news

    Congratulations, Tru.  I've been following your journey as my husband is undergoing chemo for colon cancer now, so I've been needing to absorb as much info as possible to hopefully help support him along the way.  All the very best. You deserve it.

    Sorry to hear about your wrist!

    and of course your partially blocked abdomial Aorta.  Can they perform the angioplasty to open it up?

    Bitter/Sweet

    Well that news seems to be bitter/sweet but all in all it's good.  Yes everything is changed by chemo.  My eyes have gotten so much worse, but neuropathy drives me batty if I'm not able to get my meds on time, my memory has gone to heck (wait they could be my age too LOL).  I'm so glad that things are going well for you.  Time to celebrate.  WTG on such a good appointment and enjoy your NED.  You've come a long way and deserve lots of congrats Laughing.

    Hugs! Kim

    NED, YES!

    I am so happy that you started out with NED. Sorry about the other 2 issues, but they can be dealt with. For me it felt like some one took a hundred pound backpack off of me, when I heard the NED from my onc.

     

    I wish I knew how to place a dancing yellow thingy, I would!!!Sealed

    NED - Beautiful

    Congratulations! I too follow your story and all the encouraging posts that you place to others.  I don't think you could know how much your posts help, thanks.

    Unknown injuries like that

    Unknown injuries like that are scary. Pushups, while seemingly simple, do put a lot of stress on your wrists. I want to start them up again myself. I have been a little afraid because of the illeostony. Still wanting to order the stealth belt first.

    ive sprained my wrist and it took about 6 weeks to heal and then another to heal mentally. I don’t know whether a fracture is faster or slower. I’ll take it easy on the weights.

    it is true

    A lady asked me why I could be so happy with a broken wrist, and I told her, 'A broken wrist alive is better than Cancer dead.'

    Woo hoo on the NED.

    wonderful NED news! I don’t know what to say about the other news. I too have terrible neurapathy in my feet and my digestion definitely doesn’t quite work like it used to. And the aches and pains are more than I remembe. People hear the good news about the NED and don’t realize the battle scars we tolerate even after “beating” cancer.

    Pushups? Yeah I need to start

    Pushups? Yeah I need to start them, maybe I'll buy those handles they have so I don't suffer a like injury. Sit-ups would be good too now that I'm nearing three months from the hernia/mesh stuff. I'm about out of excuses. Anyway NED is wonderful and I'm glad you have the dancing squad going strong.................Dave
