Renate Posted August 7, 2009 Share Posted August 7, 2009 Had my last Chemo in May 2008 and had to stop any further treatments due to severe Neurapathy.My Neurologist put me on Fentanyl. I got weaker & weaker, was most of the time in Bed with pain. Could hardly walk anymore, The Neurologist told me, this is what Nuropathy does.In Febr. 2009. Medicare appoved a Power chair. I had lost 20 Pounds. The end of May, my husband said you have to go to a Pain Clinic. At About the same time I forgot to replace the Fantynyl PAtch for 3 Days and realized it did not do to much to control the pain, and I did not replace it anymore. I was feeling better and better every Day. I got my strengh back, I am driving my car again after 1 1/2 years. I gaine weight and doing geat for the first time in one year. Recently I had a CT Scan and ond of course my Cancer has grown. Still everything inside the lungs. My Onco recommended 6 weeks of Radiation. I am scared what side effects I will have to endure. Any input? I just found my life again two month ago. And here we go again. Would love to hear from you. Renate Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
