Iâ€™m not sure how to report this morning. I slept well last night â€“ which surprised me. Although Iâ€™m in some pain from the Neulasta, itâ€™s not too bad. I think the ibuprophen is working better than the Tylenol did on my last cycle.
The Neulasta is supposed to give you bone pain. But for me itâ€™s muscle and skin pain. My muscle hurt and my skin doesnâ€™t like being touched.
In my two-mile walk/jog, I jogged about 25% of the first mile and about 40% of the second mile. Jogging was tough and I had to push some. My legs felt tired. I think itâ€™s partly just getting used to jogging as well as some chemo effects. When you're tired and you transition from jogging to walking, if feels like you're coasting downhill.
I weighed in at 157 Lbs this morning. That surprised me, as I didnâ€™t think I ate that much yesterday as food just didnâ€™t taste good. I expect a similar gustatory experience today.
Iâ€™m going to continue with the ibuprophen throughout the day and fortify myself with some coffee. I am finding coffee a tremendous aid to my feeling better. Today will be a good test.Posted by The Vorlon at December 23, 2005 7:21 AM
