More of the same

At this point I'm wondering just how long it'll take for things to get somewhat normal. I still have severe diarhea, and plenty of pain. Vicadin and Immodium help some. Doc said it could be "a week or two" before I return to normal, it's only been 4 days. I guess I shouldn't complain too much, it could be a lot worse.

On another note, I'd like to thank everybody who's been monitoring this blog. Knowing I have your support means a lot to me, I truly appreciate it.

Darkest before the Dawn

Today I finally got my last radiation treatment. The machine was broke on Friday when I was supposed to get it. So now all I have to do is hang out for 6-8 weeks until the surgery.

This last weekend was spent mostly in bed. Severe diarhea and general laziness. Slept through most of yesterday, with regular trips to the bathroom every couple hours. I did find out that Vicadin (sp) helps a lot. Wierd thing is though, I woke up about 3am and felt really drunk. I think I'll be taking it easy on the Vicadin :)

On the up side, most of the side effects of the chemo are gone, and other issues I'm having should all start to improve. I expect by this time next week I'll be feeling better than I have in a long time.
