I realize it had been a few days since my last post and as soon as I posted my last, things went south again. I'm really tired and don't have time for a day by day update so here is the cliff notes version:
The over the counter laxatives barely got me through the week. On Friday my local Oncologist phoned in something stronger, 14 hours later it started working. 'Started working' is a far cry from back to normal but we are getting there. Once I get my bowels back on track I can start dealing with the pain and then better sleep will come as well.
As for the trial medication, as of Thursday I restarted at a lower dose (75mg). Now I have to find patience to let it begin working.
My biggest concern is turning this around before my trip to Boston next week. On top of that we have plans to visit with family over the Thanksgiving holiday. Hoping at this point that I will be well enough to make the trip.
That's all for now. I hope to make small amounts of progress each day,and I'll do my best to make sure I write another update before too much time passes!
