Update and Upcoming Stuff

I just wanted to post a quick update on what is going on currently and what is coming up.  I spent the weekend in bed and am still on a liquid/soft food diet.  I stayed on pain meds and ibuprofen all weekend.

Today I'm back to work, so no pain meds.  We've had a lot of calls this morning because of people being out and my throat is getting sore from talking.  According to what I've read and been told, the radiation is still in effect in my body for 2 weeks after the final treatment (Friday) and it takes 4-6 weeks for the damage to heal completely.  So I'm probably looking at a few more weeks of this.

I have another CT Scan tomorrow.  It seems everyone has to have one at their facility.  As many as I've had in the past few months, I wouldn't be surprised if the radiation incurred by all these scans doesn't cause another cancer.  Anyhow, here's this weeks schedule:

Tues - CT Scan

Wed - Local Oncologist visit to discuss treatment.  She is recommending chemo and I wanted to talk to her to find out more.  Also getting Xgeva and possibly Lupron.

Fri - Start chemo (if I decide to go with this option)  


  1. Hope you recover rapidly, and good luck deciding on the chemo.
