Transmission of blog posts will resume as soon as I can type two handedly again.
While I was trying to be pro-active and get some exercise during break between lectures on Wednesday – going for a walk round the block with Uni friends AW and AE – I managed to trip on uneven footpath and graze both palms, and right shin just below the knee and sprain my left wrist. I am grateful to both of them for looking after me -getting me back to uni – cleaning me up – thanks Dr AW ably assisted by nurse AE. As my wrist started to hurt more – a trip to the Uni med centre ensued, followed by a trip to the closest medical clinic for xrays and consult. Conclusion -sprain not break thank goodness. AW was wonderful driving me to med clinic and then driving me home instead of just putting me on train. As left hand is the one I use to carry bags or pull my wheeled bag, I gave Uni a miss on Thursday before herceptin treatment – caught train to and from hospital. Photo below is how I looked on Thursday bandage on left hand, lymphodema sleeve on right arm. My right hand was slightly swollen from the fall too.
The nurses had fun on Thursday finding a vein to put my herceptin through – finally deciding to put it very gingerly in my left hand.
I have quite a lot of other things to write about but they will have to wait until I can type two-handedly again.
