Medical update

Just to let you know that I recovered from my fall quite quickly and am back to walking without my cane again. Leg braces only! Looking to get together with my physical therapist for a follow-up evaluation to assess my gait (walk) and lower back to see that all is ok. It's been quite a long but successful trip since I was released from the Rehabilitation Institute just a little over a year ago.

In the meantime I have begun taking the medication to keep my cancer in remission. Unfortunately a couple of the side effects are neuropathy and blurred vision, both of which have been affecting me to a greater extent lately. So I've had to get a new prescription for my eyeglasses and have been dealing with more tingling and pain in my feet and calves. It's more disappointing than anything else since I had been making such great progress in controlling my neuropathy. I hope the impact will be minimal so that I can continue living my life as I have over the past couple months without increasing any of my pain medications which have their own set of side effects. And side effects of any kind can be a real pain! Wish me luck or say a little prayer that the effects will be minimal. Cheers!

  1. Standing with you in hope and prayer Bob. So glad you were able to shed the cane. Must have been encouraging to be able to do that.
