JudyB Posted July 25, 2003 Share Posted July 25, 2003 Just wanted to let you all know my latest scan was an, "OK, you're fine, now get outta here!" My husband was so concerned about this check-up, he even went with me. Normally, I get my scan and visit my oncologist and, then make phone calls. With the pain I've been experiencing, everyone was a tad worried. I don't go for another checkup until Nov and that will be a month past my 2-year anniversary from dx! What has been thrown into the mix is a renewed Post Thoracic Pain. It seems to mutate and change, sometimes (like now) REALLY unpleasant. It can go from the high pitch of a nerve pain, to a low, hot deep pain. I'm on Elavil to help, but I don't know if it's doing very much any more. I am to try taking 25mg pills during the day to see if that helps (along with the 50mg I take at dinner). I have an appointment at our Pain Clinic next Fri (was supposed to go today, but they didn't get the proper referral from my HMO). Since I've been having this for more than 5 months, what's another week? I have also found that putting on the abdominal support thingy I got in the hospital does help. Lying down also helps. (I guess that would be the ultimate lying down on the job, huh?) Trying not to grumble too much, but it just wears one down. JudyB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
