I'm hanging there! Just found out today that I start the radiation on Monday; I'll also find out that day how many treatments.

Starting radiation again soon, this time on my spine.
I need to get a CT scan on Wednesday, and shortly after that, the radiation center will call with my appointment to get started.

Thank you; it feels a little overwhelming at times, but I've been living with cancer since 2003. I just try to take it one day at a time.

I had my MRI of the cervical and thoracic spine last week. Today I saw the radiation oncologist.
Good news, no cancer in the cervical spine. I already knew I had mets in the T-10 and T-12 spine; the T-10 being the worst. But the MRI also showed mets in the T-6, and T-11. They also happened to get the the L-1 and the L-2 of the lumbar spine in the MRI; they weren't expecting to find anything there. But that could explain why I am still having pain in my hip even after the radiation to the lesions on my hip joint.

So, before I have any more treatment, my doctor wants to see the rest of the lumbar spine, so I will be having an MRI done on it. And it's also possible that the pain could be coming from something that is not cancer, like a bone spur or a chip in a bone. The radiation center is going to set up the appointment for the MRI, and then I will see the doctor again. Until then, I don't know if i will be getting more radiation, or another type of treatment.

Today I finished up the radiation on my hip. It's been especially hard the last two weeks; that is when the fatigue really started to hit me, and my IBS flared up again too. I've been having to take 2-3 Imodium daily, and I have had to stick to a bland and mostly soft food diet.

After my treatment today, I saw my radiation oncologist again. He is concerned about those lesions on my spine, especially the ones that have been there a couple of years now. Since I am having more back pain than usual, he wants to check and make sure those lesions (and they are cancerous lesions) are not getting worse; if they are, I will need radiation to prevent further damage to my spine. I should be getting a call within the next day or two with my appointment time for the MRI. And because I am claustrophobic, I asked for something to calm my nerves while I am in the machine, so they are going to call in a prescription for Ativan for me.

Next Tuesday, I'll be seeing my regular oncologist again for my regular monthly appointment, and my Zometa treatment.

I'll soon be starting radiation treatment again, on my left hip. I had it in the same hip 2 years ago, but my doctors think that the cancer is starting to grow back and it's been causing pain. I need to get one more test done on Tuesday, then a few days after that I will be starting 14 low dose radiation treatments.

I finally have my new computer up and running, so now I can stay caught up here once again. However, since it so late, I'll have to wait another day to get started on all that catching up.

I do most of my reading at bedtime, and lately I'm so tired I haven't been able to read more than a few pages before I fall asleep.

Other than that, I also take a book with me when I have a doctors appointment or getting my cancer treatment.

Congratulations MOM2ACAT on your perseverence and maintaining such a healthy weight. It isn't easy to do when pain tends to curtail your activities. The only thing that helps me is SAM-e. I took it a long time ago without success, then I read that it has to be kept in a foil bubble pack or it deteriorates (in the old days it was sold loose in a bottle and was essentially useless) and must be taken on an empty stomach (I wasn't.) With those two changes, my knee pain is reduced so I am now able to take short 10-15 min. walks again and my hip pain is pretty much gone.

I've had 4 physical therapy sessions so far, and it's going very well. It is already making a difference. I still have the pain, but it is less intense, and sometimes I can go hours at a time with hardly any pain at all.

One of the things I work out with at PT is a stability ball, something I had never tried before. But I liked using it, and it's easy on the joints, so I got one for myself to use at home. I have started taking my walks again too, but starting out with slow short ones for now.

I am glad to having something to do about the pain besides just take pain pills. And I think the fact that I feel like I have more control over it now is making me feel better too.

MOM2ACAT, I hope you feel better soon. I've been taking Glucosamine Sulphate and Calcium for knee and hip joint pain for a few years now: without these, I could not walk. At times, I find a gentle yoga exercise is all my joints can take.

I hope you find something equally helpful. I keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hello everyone!
I haven't posted a lot lately, but I still get here most days even if it is just to huddle.

Still dealing with my hip and knee pain; some days it's hard for me to sit at the computer for very long.
I had an evaluation by a physical therapist last week, and he thinks it's sciatic nerve pain. I'm going to do six weeks of physical therapy, 2 days per week, starting on Tuesday.

I'm still reading; most nights I read a little bit at bedtime, but there have been a few nights lately where I have been too tired to do much reading at all. I'm still reading The Boleyn Inheritance, almost done; hoping to maybe finish it tonight.

Hello again! I'm starting to feel better and can actually find time to logon today.

Our Canadian holidays are somewhat different. Of course, I often celebrate the US holidays too like your 'American Thanksgiving'. So, I have two Thanksgiving Day turkeys here.

Memorial Day? It happens to coincide with the Baha'i celebrations. So, I'll be keeping my American friends in my thoughts and prayers as ever.

Beautiful day here today, got up into the mid 60's; warmest day so far this spring.

I got out for a walk and did a little raking too.

I finished reading Snow Flower and the Secret Fan last night; I was so anxious to see how it ended, instead of waiting to read before going to bed like I usually do, I sat down and read after my dinner. Great book! I posted a review in the book review forum.

Still windy here, but not as cold. I was glad I had the chance to get out for a walk.

Had a pretty good day today; had lunch out with friends, did a little shopping, and got a walk in too.

I have a couple of Amazon gift cards coming, I can't wait! I already know which books I want to order with them.

Hello everyone;
I had my oncologist appointment yesterday and treatment, everything went well with that.

Haven't been feeling very well with my acid reflux lately, but my internist takes care of that, and I see him in a couple of weeks, I plan to ask him about changing my meds for it to see if that helps.

Did a few loads of wash, bathed my dog & trimmed her nails. Made the SP scone recipe...one with & one without raisins. My daughter really liked them!
Got a good workout today.

Another walk this afternoon; probably my last one for at least a few days; we have rain and snow coming for the weekend.

I got out for a walk today, a short one when the wind died down for a little while. Now it's picking up again.

Yet another cold and windy day.

I had a lab work appointment late this morning, then my mom and I had lunch out, and did some shopping at Walmart.

I just got done with my dinner, made a fajita with some thin round steak I found on sale. What I didn't use for dinner, I'll get ready for the freezer later.

I went to Kmart and the dollar store this morning. It was quite cold out with the wind today. I was glad to get back home and stay in the rest of the day.

I have to start fasting later on tonight for some lab work tomorrow. Besides the blood work I get done for my oncologist every month, this time I have to get it done for my internist also, the fasting part is to check the cholesteral. I'm glad I don't have to do the fasting for my oncologist every month.

Did someone say insomnia? (It's 12:45 a.m.) Shari, glad you are feeling better. Concerning Twilight, I may get stoned for saying this, but I found it a little slow-moving (not towards the end, though). I will eventually read the others in the series, however, as my daughter ADORED them all. Nothing else has made her disappear for hours, reading (she just turned 15).

Shari, Im glad you had a good night's sleep.
The insomnia bug bit me & I was up til 5am. Went to bed & slept until 11am.
It was sunny & cool here. Had to run out to get cat food & litter, & took my daughter to get the game for her DS that her godparents send her a gift card for. She was happy.
Made dinner for my kids,myself & son's girlfriend. Very enjoyable meal together. I cant believe it is already 1130 & that I have to hit the hay soon! The day just FLEW~

I had a good night of sleep last night, and I feel so much better. My pain is in the mild range today, haven't needed a pain pill yet today.

It's cloudy today, and chilly. No walk today, but if it were just a few degrees warmer, I would.

I'd like to read the Twilight series sometime; I'm watching for a full set on Ebay for a reasonable price. I'm not in any hurry though, I have a couple of good size stacks of other books I haven't read yet.

Sorry to hear your hip pain flared up last night. I do hope tonite is a better night for you..rest well.
I did not make it to walk since I was awake most of friday night & was not going to chance driving the SUV to the park.
My daughter entertained herself & got herself cereal for breakfast but at noontime she wanted soup & a sandwich. Guess I needed the rest.
Spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning the kitchen up...washed the floor & rearranged things on the countertop~~~the kitchen just felt closed up.. Now it feels more open.
Sunday, I plan on taking my daughter to get her birthday gift from her aunt as she sent her a Game stop gift card & one from JCPenney.
Twilight...Ive heard a lot of good reviews...makes me a bit curious to go pick it up and start that series.

Well, i finally broke down and picked up the first book in the Twilight series. And i can honestly say, i'm enjoying it!

I didn't have such a good night last night; my hip pain flared up, and I had to take a pain pill at 3am; I read for about 45 minutes til it started to work, then finally went to sleep around 4am. Still felt very draggy and tired when I got up at 10am. But a 20 minute walk outside this afternoon perked me up and made me feel better.

Hopefully, I will sleep tonight. Going to try to finish the book I am reading now too.

Salutations~
This weekend I am hoping to walk at one of the local parks with other Sparkers in the area. Let's hope it doesn't rain.
Thought I'd go to church Saturday evening rather than Sunday morning as I would rather sleep in. Have to do some birthday shopping for my great nephew & take my daughter shopping to get her birthday gift using the gift cards her godparents sent her.
Then at some point relax Sunday evening.
Maybe read a book or do some crafts.

I thought I'd open up a thread here, where we can talk about things other than books; anything at all that's on your mind, or if you just want to say 'hello'.

So, any plans for the weekend?
Tonight I am going to the Relay for Life for a few hours. The local college here is doing a 12 hour relay. (Our town's big 24 hour relay is in the fall). My mom and I are both cancer survivors, and we'll be walking in the survivor's lap.

Saturday and Sunday, I'll just be relaxing at home. It's supposed to be getting up near 50 this weekend, so I am planning on getting out for a couple of walks, and maybe start cleaning up the yard too.
