It’s been a while since I posted. I’ve just been taking it easy.
I’ll have my (close to) 30 day check up at Duke soon, and maybe I’ll find out that my m-spike has gone down. My local doctor let me sneak in a SPEP a couple of weeks ago, and I was surprised to see that the results weren’t much different than they were in July.
Today I walked 2 miles. I’m working my way up to 3. I even have a workout buddy, so I’m more motivated to do well. The time goes by a lot faster and is much more enjoyable when you have someone to talk with while you’re exercising.
Hey Superwoman, I was wondering if you really were going to sail through this with none of the bad effects I had. If you can walk 2 miles, you’re coming through the other end. The mucositis is just awful! I had an interesting bout of shock with last weeks platelets–I went into anaphalactic shock and it ended up just like mucositosis. I had to wait 6 hours to release me so I could get my MRI–mistake, you cannot breathe after shock, the throat and tissues are too swollen. thought I’d die in that tube. Normally no problem with MRI, bring it on.
How wonderful that you’re walking with a buddy. Go Beth!
