In a rested position, my leg already feels much better. My surgery relieved a lot of pain in the area of the removed tumor and eliminated many of the shooting pains throughout my leg. But unlike previous recoveries, where the baseline is normal, this time I’m learning as I go what my new limitations will be. Again, the objective was not to cure the cancer, but treat the worst symptoms. Where will I be left when I “recover?” Able to continue traveling? We need to get to Sacramento before we rack up too high of a parking bill! My biggest challenge lately has been my calf muscle, which has been stiff and sore like a badly pulled muscle. I’m able to walk, but with a lot of pain and difficulty. In the meantime, most of my time has been spent in a deep sleep; probably a side effect of all of the pain medications. I need to start drinking more water to clear my system, they’re playing games with my head!
