I had my complete body bone scan last Wed. and my Dr. was out of town until yesterday. They called in the afternoon and said there was NO cancer in my bones. I know that is what they were looking for even though the Dr. did not tell me that but the technician was explaining about the scan and accidently told me they use this looking for cancer which I had thought anyways. My oldest and last sister passed away last year with bone cancer in April and I had mentioned that to my Dr. so of course that was in his mind.
What it did show was a lot of arthritis in particular places and one was the right elbow plus both wrists. I guess that is why the cortisone shot did not help this time. I have been trying to really not do much in the way of using the arm but that is almost impossible when you are the chief cook and bottle washer. Unless you had a live in housekeeper having house help would not help too much. I am considering hiring a cleaning woman for the heavy work. I have one at home I ha ve had for years but it is a much larber house. I go to the Dr. on Thurs to talk about what we can do. I guess therapy (which I thought I might need) will be of no help if it is arthritis.
I have been reading most of your blogs but not leaving messages because it hurts to even do this.
I took 2 advil after lunch and that has helped. I might be living on them after this.
I did get some christmas decorations up and will have to take pics and post. My daughter Sue is flying in from Chicago Sun. and flying back Thurs. night. Just a short visit by herself. We will be lunching, shopping, etc. I am looking forward to it.
