I believe that I am starting to slowly feel better. The antibiotics seem to be controlling abdominal pains and GI issues, so this weekend has been very happy for us.
Saturday we were able to attend some of the boys sporting events. Sage is playing basketball, and Cheynne is doing Cross Country. It was wonderful getting out of the house and watching them. I am so proud of our boys!
Sunday Noreen and I got chores complete, watched some football, and generally relaxed. I feel good, and can only complain about knee pain in both legs. Not sure if it is muscle or tendon related, but seems to slowly get worse throughout the day. I will be asking my oncologist more about this. He has been giving me a B12 injection once a week to help with the tingling in my ankles, but this feels more like muscle or tendon issues near my knees. He did ask me to take B6, the first time I brought it up and I have been taking 2 a day. So I’m not sure it is the same issue with what the B6 should be helping with. We will look into it further.
I followed up about scheduling my PET scan, and my oncologists office said they are still waiting for insurance approval. We are all our own advocates for healthcare, and I will be calling my insurance tomorrow to clear this up, or find out why it is taking so long. With my disease, the doctor has ordered the PET scan every 6 months, so I cannot understand why the insurance is holding up approval for a necessary scan to find tumors in my body.
I am keeping up the fight! I hope you had a great weekend.
