I showed Dr H my feet which had suffered greatly at Dreamworld and we also talked about the fact I need to take things a little slower.
This was just the damage from one days walking at Dreamworld (Wednesday)- my feet were so sore we had to resort to a motorised scooter at the shopping mall the next day, golf cart at Australia Zoo (Friday), and wheelchair for another shopping excursionon Saturday – ‘Boy, did I feel like an invalid’
no pictures of me in scooter apart from this one that YD drew
because my feet and fatigue were so bad, Dr H delayed the start of my next xeloda cycle for at least a week to allow me time to recover, there is also talk of decreasing the dosage more. I must admit this concerns me a bit because I worry at a lower dosage it will lose its effectiveness, allowing the tumours to grow once again. Its very much a trade in whether I perservere with higher dose and continued good results, or compromise for more comfort and being able to do more of what I want to do.
It has taken me til now to get over the holiday fatigue and I have had to resort to blister plasters on my thumb and index finers of each hand as they are starting to go the way of my feet to enable me to type and write without pens or computer keys rubbing on my fingertips
