Yesterday I was at the hospital in Lund, meeting up with the second specialist about my “sorry ass” – very early start for me. The connection with my bus stop and the hospital wasn’t the best, so I had to arrive to the hospital nearly an hour before my appointment. So I had a breakfast in the hospital’s A Bistro Café.
The doctor the most wonderful woman by name Berit – came and collected me with a big smile in the waiting room together with two medical students. She wanted to hear my story in my words – and when I started to talk about my pains and discomfort I started to cry, my last 9 months has most days been a living hell.
Berit told me that if I wasn’t upset over my situation, she would have been worried about my mental health. Also when I talked about all the aftermaths I have after my cancer treatment and the end of my treatments, when things went so bad for me …. I became upset too.
Berit like all doctors I have talked to so far and that it quite a few, said that it’s a damage on my colon after all the radio therapy I got. . But she didn’t say that there isn’t anything they can do.
She has not put me on a medicine by name Lyrica, a medicine for epilepsy and shingles – but it has very strange side effects. Yesterday, when I was back home .. I took one pill and I was floored, felt so strange and didn’t feel good at all.
Went to bed – slept for 4 hours … went up for something to eat and then back to sleep. I think I have slept for about 12 hrs. This morning I took me second pill and it kicked very soon. It’s like I’m walking beside myself, I feel very good mentally – but I can’t concentrate on anything. I’m all over the place all the time, more than usual. And I feel so restless and a bit anxious.
Today I can’t concentrate on making coffee even. Went to the Supermarket with my grocery list – still I had to go back to vegetable and fruit section 4 times. I feel a bit like when I was on Mirapront – the fantastic slimming pills in the 70’s.
Have tried to get a post together about my days in Stockholm, but no way I can do it – started all over twice now. Berit said that it will take a up to a week to get used to the medicine and I’m only on a test trail for a months, on very low strength, 25mg.
Do they work ????? Lets’ hope so.
So I will lay a bit low until I have adapt to the pills …. I wish you all a pleasant weekend.
