Tissue Pain has Begun ... YUCK!

It started early yesterday morning in my face. My cheeks and jaw hurt to touch. By evening, my neck, chest and arms were tender. I went to bed early hoping to get to sleep before I was too uncomfortable. But not such luck. So here I am at the kitchen table eating cottage cheese and trying not to move my skin or touch myself. Even my arms touching my sides aches.

I go to the Champion Centre tomorrow morning for liver enzyme tests (as well as other blood tests) and to have my PICC-line flushed and redressed. I'm going to ask if I can take tylenol if my liver results are good. If my liver enzymes are up, I think tylenol will be a no-no.

I hate cancer and everything out there and inside that cause it! Oh yeah ... I'm spewing vitriol alright. Better to spew it than keep it inside. It probably causes cancer!


  1. Yup, let it out, Heather! I'll help you...DAMN CANCER AND EVERYTHING THAT CAUSES IT!! DAMN ALL THE STUPID AND ANNOYING SIDE EFFECTS OF THE DAMN MEDS!! DAMN..DAMN..DAMN!!! A reminder though....SIDE EFFECTS ARE TEMPORARY & SHALL PASS!! Hold onto that!! I hope Tylenol will be a go for you! Hang in there, PH!

  2. Thanks, Devy! I needed someone to RANT and RAGE with me! And you do it so much better than I do, so I'm saying ... "YA ... WHAT SHE SAID!!"

    I went back to bed last night at 2:30 a.m. and did get some sleep. I feel a little better for it and the tissue tenderness is a bit more tolerable. Now I'm off for bloodwork so I have to get ready to go out even though I really don't feel like it.

    Really. Thanks for ranting with/for me. I needed that.
