I just returned from my two-mile jog. There is no improvement over yesterday. If anything, I felt a smidgeon slower. When I started out, I could feel the fluid between my lung and rib cage squishing around.
However, my rib cage doesnâ€™t have the soreness it once had. Instead, it has a different pain. I had the same pain when they originally drained the fluid, when I was in the hospital. At the end, I thought I could feel my lung rubbing against the rib cage. My doctor had warned me to expect it. Itâ€™s not a nasty pain, more of a dull ache.
I will say I feel quite a bit better this morning than I did last night. Last night I was pretty wiped. The Benadryl seems to have finally purged from my system. I no longer have any dizziness.
My energy level is OK. Using the Star Trek scale, I have full impulse power. However, if I need warp drive I might be able to achieve warp 1, but it wouldnâ€™t last long.
One thing Iâ€™m having difficulty with in concentration. Iâ€™m finding it somewhat difficult to concentrate at work.
Later this morning Iâ€™m scheduled to see another oncologist for a second opinion.Posted by The Vorlon at October 21, 2005 6:24 AM
