26th Feb 2012

Well, today I thought that I would share some of my physical symptoms with you all.
I hope that this will help anyone in a similar situation.

Tinnitus (result of chemo)
Headaches (Benign tumour on brain? Stress?)

'Sensations' to left of face, neck, shoulder and arm. (No idea)
Occasional cough, (lung)

Dull ache to left back below shoulder blade, continuing to the front, with occasional sharp pain to the left chest. (Cancer in left lung).

Dull ache to right upper abdomen, with sharp pain in moving in a certain way.
I instinctively put my hand on the pain, and I can physically feel one of the tumours in my liver! How fascinating is that? (Tumour(s) in liver.

Continuous dull ache to lower back, left hip and left thigh, with persistent pain on over activity. (Bone cancer, lymphnode cancer in groin, osteoporosis).

Hiccoughs (Liver).

Severe indigestion..

Finger nails turning blue.

Memory....What memory?????

Most of the above are being controlled effectively by medication.

To be perfectly honest, I think that I am very lucky, at this stage, considering the cancers and prognosis, things could be a great deal worse.

I would say keep your chin up but you might make something hurt if you literally do ;-( and you're so good at doing it metaphorically anyway you don't need me to remind you ;-)! Long may you continue to feel relatively OK, if not absolutely spiffing...
