The Day After

OxyNorm 5mg is very good for instant pain relief. Its a opioid painkiller similar to morphine. This blocks the transmission of pain signals sent by the nerves to the brain. Therefore, even though the cause of the pain may remain, less pain is actually felt. However, it does not last the 4 hours as claimed by the drug manufacturer. Possibly 2-3 hours only. I got very drowsy and mouth was very dry after taking the drug. I don't think I want to take the drug continuously. I think I will alternate between taking Ultracet and OxyNorm for the time being. This morning, I was awaken by the pain on my right leg and spent sometime massaging it. After breakfast, I took an OxyNorm capsule. The pain went away quickly but I was also feeling very sleepy after that. I am also feeling a little sick and feverish. After lunch, I felt even sleepier. So I took a nap to rest.

I went to the medical supply shop to buy a walking stick. I feel kind of funny and clumsy when I first used it. My right feet keep bumping onto the walking stick. I struggled a bit when I was climbing up and walking down the stairs. I think there are some practicing I need to do on how to walk properly with the walking stick.

Later in the afternoon, I paid a visit to my friend, Yeong. We spoke about some cancer patients and I also updated him about my upcoming plans. He suggested I continue to take the CA herbs for bone cancer and pain in the meantime.  He told me of two recent interesting cases, one a 79 year bachelor who was just diagnosed with colon cancer that has spread to his liver. The doctor gave him only three months to live and if he did surgery, he can increase his life span by about another three months. He rejected the recommendation and went for alternative treatment. He asked my friend whether he can smoke his cigar and drink whiskey, at least for his coming birthday after that he will stop. My friend just smiled. In another case, the man was diagnosed with lung cancer at aged 100. Despite having cancer, he still continues to ride his motorcycle until one day he fell into the drain. Of course, he is now grounded by his family. A lot of people are getting cancer at a later age.
