So besides using pain killer medication, I have to learn other methods of controlling pain. One way is to resume my coffee enema at least once a day. It's not easy for me to do coffee enema these days due to pain on right abdomen and my legs. I have also started to take CA herbs for my bone tumors and pain control. One thing I have learned is not to waste my energy to control pain but rather to use it for healing.
I find my stomach is bloated a little bit. My appetite at the moment is not good.
