My mind is coming up with more symptoms, more aches and pains as I wean myself off of the narcotics previously camouflaging cancer pain and treating the nerve pain from my foot. I can only imagine what I will really feel like when I'm not taking any pain meds. I'd always used pain as a measure of how I was doing, and I never liked being dependent on pain meds for daily activities. If I can't function now without narcotics, I will really be upset with myself. Hopefully some ibuprofen will do the trick if there is still some pain going around.
Now next time I post, I will hopefully be in a better place and say something like 1) No one has ever had my type of cancer before, 2) No one has ever been treated with the drugs I have been and will be treated with..... therefore why assume I will follow in anyone elses' footsteps. I wish I could feel that way right now.
