Dem Bones, dem Bones...

When I woke up this morning my back was a little sore and I thought maybe I had slept awkwardly but as I started to move around I realised it was a bit more than that.

I actually had quite a bit of pain in my bones particularly round my hips and pelvis and bit in my sternum. The worst part was the pulsing pain I got round my lower back. I recognised the pain as being very similar to when I was having GCSF to stimulate my bone marrow stem cells to allow them to be harvested.

Clearly the chemo is having an effect on things. Walking across from the car park to the clinic I was shuffling like a little old man.

I had my blood tests and explained about the pains and it is "just one of those things". I can take paracetamol for it and if it is still bad on Monday they can try prescribing some stronger pain killers. ( Aspirin and Ibuprofen are off the agenda ).

I've taken some paracetamol and it has settled down a bit. I coped ok with it when I was having the stem cell harvest so hopefully it won't be too bad this time.
