On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

During the whole nausea/vomiting/surgery thing, I took a break from Afinitor.  Dr T said I could start back on it when I felt ready, so I started yesterday.  She said any side effects could take days to weeks to show (so basically no idea when).


Still a bit tender at my incision sites, but I think by mid-week I’ll be OK to drive and I’m planning to do my volunteering on Thursday.  I’m having trouble sleeping, which means my poor husband is too.  I’m a side sleeper and it’s been too painful to lie on either side – oddly the opposite from the surgery is MORE painful.  Last night I dug out my body pillow I used when I was pregnant so I could lie on my side without as much pressure on my abdomen.  Tonight one of us is taking the couch and I might try an Advil PM.

    You sure have a lot of energy! Glad you are feeling better! My advice – sleep on top of the couch cushions – it’s pretty comfortable.

    Wishing you a good night’s sleep ~
