Home Now what? The highs and lows of survivorship



I'm Boring

Well apparently I'm Boring (oncology wise) for the moment.  Over the last 3 visits to clinic.  My markers have held in the 30's the osteoblastic activity has stopped and the lesions haven't increased in size.  Woohoo.  No change to the medication as yet.  So now in holding pattern. re cancer .
Still have no update on Prolapse even going private no appointments till May 2023.
I thought my reflux was getting more intense  apparently I now have a gallstone. 
As for the seizing up of my joints  physio is handling this and it is helping ever so slowly.

    Well done on being boring @cranky_granny.  It's a good result.

    I do physio pilates for joints and it really does keep me moving. Don't think I would be the same with out it. 

    Getting appointments is a challenge now isn't it. Fingers crossed for a cancellation.

    Yes I definitely like boring 
    now if I could just get the rest of my life boring it would be a fantastic result.

    Hmmm ... If that is being boring - WELL DONE - and great news that your markers and lesion are stable!! xx

    How Disappointing the prolapse can't be attended to til March tho - fingers crossed for a cancellation!! 

    And bad luck with the gallstone!  :(  Can they blast that so it passes with less pain??

    Make haste slowly & look after YOU xx. take care

    Hi @cranky_granny
    im not sure how old you are but guessing you may be close to me if you are indeed a granny.
    I am 64 and to many people my life may appear “ boring” but since my BC diagnosis 2 years ago I try and enjoy the little joyful things in life and not sweat the unimportant stuff .
    If boring means I can be here for another hug with my loved ones and see another beautiful sunset then give me boring !
    😊😊

    Im 65. Im going to hang in there to be an authentic great grandma. I have lots of steps. 
    I tackle things as they turn up these days and try not to worry about what tomorrow will bring.

    Being boring at this stage of your medical journey has to be a positive!

    I can remember at age 36 I had to have spinal surgery and the nurse sat with me asking all the questions, blood pressure, diabetes et cetera!  I responded with No to everything and said I'm boring!  Her response - that's a good thing to be - medically!

    Hope you stay stable and get to sort out the gallstone bother as soon as possible - I hear it can be quite painful 

    As to the aches and pains and joint pains, what a bitch!  I always say I would like one day where nothing hurts, just one day to start with would be nice!

    Take care and Best wishes with your ongoing treatment
