Just to make sure I'm still part medication, he added 600mg of ibuprofen three times per day AND a synthetic morphine-like opiate twice a day. Five pills for breakfast, three for lunch, and five for dinner. Knee pain will probably not be a problem again. It's all supposed to be helping with my inflammation pains, too, but it still hurts to go to the bathroom. Maybe a little less than before.
But the bottom line right now is that I feel pretty good. I feel like my body needs a lot of work and care, but knowing I just have one more radiation on Friday and after that can focus completely on recovering from treatment makes it feel like things are only going to get better. Talk about a treatment that feels worse than the disease.
The sun is out, the trees are green, I have the energy to go walking about in the lovely warm weather, what more could I possibly want in life?
