Come on people. It's been a week since anyone posted here. Are your lives that perfect? Nobody's spouse has bad breath or funny toes? No hemorrhoidal issues to discuss? Disappointing.

I wake up every morning around 3am or so and start a series of bowel movements. Could repeat a few times throughout the day, or well over a dozen. They've got me loaded up on multiple laxatives, plus that Whipple surgery messed up my innards. It's better than the alternative.

Had been dealing with a lot of pain for months. On time-released Oxycontin all day, and take Dilaudid (hydromorphone) daily for break-thru pain. Kept on increasing dosages. The medical cannabis was working better in the past. Still helps a little. They finally decided to try steroids, Dexamethasone. Took a few days to build up a dose, but it worked. The lymph node and tumor related pain started fading, a lot. It was awesome. Back, side, hip, abdomen, shoulder. All better. Asked why they didn't try this nine months ago. Got smoe reply about side effects.

After a few days, I didn't need the extra opioid for break-thru pain. But, started getting bad leg cramps. Couldn't sleep either. Common side effects of the Dexamethasone. Then my legs started swelling. Was told to start weaning down on the med. Yesterday, it looked like I had elephantiasis in my left foot. Crazy swelled. I'm not even sure if it's related to this med or just cancer. Hospice nurse is visiting today. Unfortunately, with the decrease in the steroid, all of the pain came back. They were talking about other options... oxy increase, morphine pills, or fentanyl patch. We shall see.

So how was that for my weekly whine? Next.

My whole life is a whine. I'd go into details but I'm sick of thinking about it. :D

Not to brag, but I had a legit 2" ingrown hair I got out a couple months ago. Same area. It was creepy... but yet... fascinating.
