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.

    Hope you are able to get some restful sleep tonight. May tomorrow be a better day for you. Keeping you in my daily prayers. Let me know if there is any thing specific you need prayers for. Sometimes when fighting cancer and all that is involved there is one thing that may stand out for you. Please let me know. I know how it has been with my DH and our very good friends, Dennis and Jo.
    Blessings and hugs,

    Hey Shari, So sorry you have had so much pain and nausea. Glad the nausea passed by the time you had to leave for radiation. Hope you can have a much better night tonight. You probably know this......try to stay ahead of your pain, better to take your pain pills sooner rather than wait till your pain is severe. Also, eat a little snack with the pain medication if your stomach is empty. It doesn't have to be much, a few crackers would be fine. Having something in your tummy will help prevent nausea from pain medication. Enjoy your TV show! I wonder if Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice will be on tonight? Hope so!

    Take good care, will be praying for you to feel better tonight and tomorrow.
