It just dawned on me that I was taking the same pain medicine as Dr. House (oxycodone/vicadin) for 'quality of life' (QOL) pain management.
However taking this medicine does not make me smarter as it does House…on the contrary, it severely fogs my brain, rendering me to an almost vegetative state whereby simple decisions or instructions are difficult or completely forgotten.
It also brings about bowel obstructions, severe itching and makes it hard to wake up in the morning. Not a good way to go through life!
So I began the process of cutting back on my pain meds-not an easy thing to do (because I am in pain). However, after three weeks, I have successfully cut out 75% of the oxycodone previously taken.
Not only do I feel better, but I have regained my faculties! So nice to be able think again!
At the writing of this TerenceFlash I have started the fifth of five consecutive days where I feel pain at a lower grades and energy at highs not experienced for many months!
Praise God, I say (how else could I take less pain meds and feel less pain)?
So, thanks to all my friends for the prayers you have lifted up on my behalf. Keep knocking on Heaven’s door and we will see these rebellious cancer cells flee from my body. I believe it and receive it!
