The radiation therapy is really beginning to wear on me. My energy level has dropped significantly in the last couple of days. I have completed eleven sessions and still have fourteen more to go.
This treatment has been by far more difficult than chemotherapy was. The pelvic region is now beginning to feel quite distended and I am experiencing minor cramping.
I’ll be seeing the doctor tomorrow and will have a few more questions. One is do we have to do the full 25 rounds? And when should treatment be halted regarding symptoms? I know that I’m not close to reacting to the extreme but still, as I have confessed, I am a lousy patient. Plus I would really like to know.
I took the hemp oil last night and it did help so I will continue with this as well. I have been encouraged to eat a low fibre diet for the remainder of treatment. It will, I am told, take about 2 weeks for my body to right itself in terms of its daily functions and likely about 4 to 6 weeks before it has healed up completely from these abuses.
I need to modify my workout schedule because as it stands right now, I can’t make it to the gym in the morning. It has become a battle to get out of bed these days. Once up and awake I’m okay but it’s been tough.
I think I will focus on going for walks and try to get some activities happening on the weekends. This may be more advantageous than trying to get up and go to the gym. I’m just too exhausted these days.
Just another 17 days to go and then I have 2 weeks off as well. I am totally looking forward to some down time. I will start back fresh in the New Year.
The cancer is gone and it’s not coming back. Of this, I am certain.
This has been a rough year. I know many who have found it to be a real challenge. I am optimistic that the year ahead will be a breakthrough one on many levels. I need to really focus on not just healing physically but to feeding the soul and ensuring that my spirit is rich.
At the moment I am so out of balance. I really need to get some serious meditations in.
Still, the end is at least very close now. I just have to take a deep breath and will the body, mind and spirit to pass through this storm. Then its done. The payoff…good health for the next 40 or so years.
Enjoy your day. Namaste.
