Day 6 & 7

A full weekend. Made it through my kid’s basketball tourney on Saturday thanks to Imodium and banana/PB on a white bagel. Lots of hydration too. I was pretty tired Saturday. Not sleeping great because of radiation side effects getting worse. Sunday I woke up and was determined to manage symptoms. Started with a bath and then switched to my husband’s boxer briefs for the foreseeable future (my undies hurt). The name of the game is staying dry folks! And using lots of barrier cream. Sunday proved to be wonderful. Great weather. We washed the cars, walked the dog, did yard work (I largely pretended), and got ice cream. Mouth sores now too :/ I felt it starting yesterday but it’s only gotten worse today. My whole inside bottom lip feels burned. Or like I ate 3 full bags of salt and vinegar chips. Yes exactly like that- Torn up. So I try to rinse several times a day now. Back at it tomorrow!

Also, a friend shared my story and link to meggs fight fb page this evening in her private group. There’s over 1000 followers in her group. 😳 Thats a ton of people to reach!

Welcome to my tribe. I was diagnosed with anal cancer 2/23/21, then found out it was caused by HPV. This is the journey.
