Almost inquired via email, but remembered to check here...

Good to hear it's not an issue yet...

Prayers for that to continue throughout will remain active! [pray]

Well the side effects include mild nausea which is easily controlled with ginger candy. But I have one heck of a lot of joint pain. I've had a hard time controlling the pain. The pain levels have been in the 9 and 10 range for several hours. So I broke down and took some painkillers I'm not supposed to which include oxycodon and ibuprofen. Along with heat patches I've been able to keep it down in the 5 to 6 range. I'll call my doctor first thing Monday morning to see what he could recommend that will not cause kidney issues. This is one of the rare side effects of this chemo that I'm on and sadly I ended up with it.

Well, Bub, it's Monday afternoon...even in NM! [Smile]

So what did the doc say?

Wish some of the USANA stuff could help but don't know what it'd be...

I had my annual physical, which included 2 shots, Pneumo vax and flu shot, one each arm... then home for a stint in the heat digging out my chicken wire garden fence as it grew fast with all the rain we'd had early... came in soaked and fell asleep...I'm thinking those 2 shots knocked me for a loop!

Wishing you the best li'l brother!

So sorry you are suffering from joint pain. Have you tried Tumeric therapy? Tumeric is a very effective anti-inflammatory, there are several brands that offer capsules. Also, capsacian creams that contain the volatile oil of hot peppers to rub onto the joint. And there is a bee venom cream from Manuka Honey USA that helps also, as long as you are not allergic to bee stings. You certainly do not need another fly in the ointment.
I hope you feel better.

Feels like the symptoms may be decreasing I went for a walk tonight for half a mile my hips hurt the whole way but not intolerable. Working with the doctors to get my medications two control the pain before going on to the full dose of the chemo. Feeling really good this evening pain seems to be easily controlled.
I'm using USANA Cellsentials which is the new name for Essentials. Still giving me energy [Smile]

Prayers abound for continued decline in joint pain... prior especially to full dose of Chemo...

Hope all works according to His plan... as it will and should.

Peace brother...thanks for the update.

The effects of the chemo are wearing off I was able to go to bed last night with just Tylenol and the nerve pain medicine which helps to deal with the residual nausea. Slept wonderful. Today there is still residual pain but it's on a much much lower level I'm controlling it with Tylenol and an occasional oxycodone. That should continue to decrease at least hopefully to the level of what it was prior to the chemo
But boy it's scary thinking about going on a full dose of that stuff and having to suffer through that. I don't know how I can handle that so they're going to have to come up with something to handle that pain

Hey Galen.
I had noticed you hadn't been around the bench much, but hadn't realized all that was happening. I'm not the most religious of people, but I'll send a prayer out with your name on it.
Hope you recover soon. Need all the help we can get to keep Roy under control.

Bvas I've been fighting this stuff for 10 years and God's kept me above ground. Bvas religion kills! You just need to know God has already forgiven all your sin from the day you were conceived to the day you leave this Earth. He just wants to show you how to receive it.

Praise God! The joint pain level from the chemo quit sometime last night. The pain level is back to pre chemo levels which I can control with a couple of Tylenol. I'd love to be able to take an Aleve which would remove all the pain but then I'd probably abuse those joints. Praising God and praying that pain doesn't return after the next infusion of chemo. [pray]

I'm sure you can feel the support here for your hopes to be fullfilled regarding the pain as chemo continues, but... knowing you, you will draw on HIS strength to get you thru whatever comes your way...

Keep the Son in your eyes!

We went to the ER last night due to the pain and had a CT scan done. Found out one tumor had a growth spurt and is pushing against my innards. There was no blockage after all. We're going to see my oncologist this AM. So I'm asking that you take the authority that Jesus gave you and tell my body to be healed. Don't waste Jesus' time by asking Him to do what He's already done and wants you to do. If you don't believe me check the Bible to see what is the truth and don't believe what you hear in church. God's Word trumps man's teaching.
