I spend way too much time at Barnes West Co Hospital.
My knees are all swollen, but we can’t switch up the meds, so I got cortisone shots in both knees. Damn those are a bitch, but they have worked well in the past, so it’s worth the pain.
I’ve been told I can’t run again until Saturday, which sucks because I’m past my NOPE weight according to the doctor’s scale. Ugh. So I guess I’ll just work what I can control: portion sizes, what I eat and drink, water intake, and tracking. That’s all more effective anyway.
My head has been hurting literally for days, because I prob have brain mets, lol sob, and I’m thinking about just giving myself a lobotomy.
I guess I’ll have some tequila instead.
Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
I’m tired of feeling sick/poorly all the time.
The keto flu has hit. Headache, fatigue, cramping. Fun!
Also my spinal tumors are causing pain today. 😢
Despite appearances, I’m really not feeling well today, and it’s bumming me out.
It’s exhausting living inside of this body.
You get breast cancer so they cut your tits off and give you new ones that don’t look as good. Okay fine. But then these fake tits hurt all the time, like constant discomfort, and sometimes it’s significant fucking knock me on my ass sort of pain. That’s just fucking rude.
My tits hurt right now in case you didn’t pick up on that.
The nerve pain from my bilateral mastectomy is flaring up today, so that’s fun.
The classic symptoms of PMPS are pain and tingling in the chest wall, armpit, and/or arm. Pain may also be felt in the shoulder or surgical scar. Other common complaints include: numbness, shooting or pricking pain, or unbearable itching
That pretty much sums it up.
I guess I should take some pain meds, though they honestly don’t do much with this type of pain…even the narcotics. I mostly just have to grin and bear it.
I can wear my rings again. This makes me happy. 💕
