Another Day

Another day to deal with issues. Getting my knees xrayed. I hope they can find the reason my knees hurt so bad. They feel better this morning, but I went to bed at 7pm with heating pad. You know how some days you wake up and you feel like maybe it is going away. But it is just a matter of time before the pain, tingling, numbness and freezing hands and feet. I am blessed for that short period. If I dont do anything their much better. Huh..not the real world. Thanks for all those who responded to my last post. You all make me feel so much better. As always love and prayers to all... Love Gina
Jenner, Ann sent you a hug.

Hi, Gina. I'm still dealing with severe hip pain three years post-treatment. I know exactly what you mean about waking up and thinking the pain is subsiding, only to realize moments later that it's back. It's frustrating and depressing. I don't have any words of wisdom or anything about how to deal with this, but I wanted to let you know that I understand and share your frustration. When I get really bummed out about it, I force myself to write out a list of things I'm thankful for and a list of things I'm still able to do. I find that helps a bit, at least mentally. Love and hugs to you, Dear Gina. Hang in there. Danean
Hi Gina, I've only had one treatment with Folfox, but that night my knees hurt so bad I almost cried! Leg ached too, but the KNEES, were awful. Hurt the next day too, but less. Im wondering if it was the Oxaliptain?! I HATE that drug already. I'll bet it's from your chemo... Hang in there girl, HUGS!
I think chemo does as much damage as it does good for our bodies...
