They’ve put me on morphine round the clock for the pain. It suppresses the pain but puts me straight to sleep. Which is fine. Lots and lots of sleep this weekend.
They doubled the morphine yesterday. It helps but it’s not enough. Particularly since it makes me vomit. A lovely side effect.
My appointment is the end of the week and we’ll clearly change treatments based on what our oncologist recommends after she sees the results of the scan. There’s so much pain in my ribs, it’s clearly not nothing. It would be lovely if it were only a cracked rib, though, instead of effects of spreading cancer.
This week we are praying that my oncologist chooses the right treatment and that it is effective. Quickly.
