Long day today, wasn't feeling good
Thursday, December 08, 2011
I went to bed at 10:30pm last night, I was so tired. I went right to sleep, but I woke up around 3:30am. My right hip and my upper back, (where my newest bone mets are) were hurting. I tossed and turned for about an hour, then I finally took my stronger pain meds. They took awhile to work, but eventually I fell back asleep, though I kept waking up a few more times. I got up around 9:30am but didn't feel rested at all.
After breakfast, I started feeling nauseous. I took my Compezine around 10:45am. It makes me sleepy, but I knew if I didn't get the nausea under control it would be really hard riding in the car to go to my radiation treatment in the afternoon. I couldn't wait for it to be over with today because all I wanted to do was to be back home for the rest of the day and put on my pajamas and warm fuzzy robe. I think the nausea is from the radiation, and a little bit from the pain meds I had taken too. Anyway, the nausea was under control by the time I had to leave for radiation.
I had to take a pain pill when I got home, the right hip started hurting again. It also really hurt my spine today laying on the table for radiation, but that can't be helped; that's just the way it has to be done, can't lay on a cushion or anything. But the radiation takes less than a minute.
I am still tired, but around 5pm I finally started to feel a little better. I will probably go to bed early tonight, but I am staying up at least long enough to watch Big Bang Theory at 8pm.
