What now?

I went to one of my many doctors yesterday (the one I see for my hip & back) and he has come to the conclusion that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis throughout my entire body. All that I can say to that is DUH!! I can’t even walk around the block without being in pain for a whole week.

Anyways he prescribed Sulindac you can find the side effects here. My favorite quote is this: Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. I started taking the pills last night so in a couple of weeks I should know if it is going to help out or not. Hopefully it will. I did not have these problems prior to my Cancer so I guess Chemo is the gift that keeps on giving.

I see Dr. Cripe on the 22nd of this month and if (or when) my blood work comes back ok, I will get to move my appointments to every three months. I am actually pretty excited. I can remember when I started going for my monthly blood draws; I was always so nervous that the Cancer would come back that I couldn’t sleep the night before my appointments.

I have two blogger friends that need a little encouragement this week, Diehl Martin at The Cancer Blog he is reaching the end of his fight against pancreatic cancer, he has recently been put on hospice care (which is basically end of life care). He still has an amazing outlook on life, his faith in God and love for family and friends are all so beautiful . And Why Mommy seems to be a little discouraged this week. She has breast cancer and they have just upped her Chemo to once a week. So stop by and offer a word of encouragement.
