First day of Radiation for Kathleen as well as a visit with the Pain and Symptom team. Kath is having a lot of difficulty with her back pain. Doubt its the cancer, most likely from the bad sitting as well as not being able to do her exercises that have in the past kept it very well managed. So yet another med to try and deal with a different type of pain. Tylenol works very well, but she cant take that when her immune system is suppressed as it can hide a fever which indicates infection. Of course being on the radiation table doesnt help her back either. But she is a trooper!
