Pity…. The idea that the pain was diminishing didn’t appear to be true just yet. I’m still on Oxycontin and paracetamol. The daily level keeps it bearable, but on a regular basis I can have an Oxynorm when it gets bad.

The radiation takes about 6 à 8 weeks to take effect. I will have to be patient for a couple of weeks. It’s hard to get used to.

I have kicked my prednison for about a week, the nights are getting better. I have a great talent for sleeping, but not when I’m on steroids.

Today I got instructions on the telephone for my Monday PET CT scan. Niels already pictured me with Doris & Daisy in that little tunnel. But I was told to leave my pets at home. Monday around noon I will be expected. You are not allowed to eat six hours before. Only water, coffee and tea without sugar or milk. I will be drive again and fortunately Els has a nice book, because the whole session will take about two hours.

On Wednesday I will hear the results. I hope we start the treatments soon.
