Fleur,
hope there's much less, or preferably, zero pain.
also that you're cozy and relaxed :)

Hello there


I requested Dr to increase Lyrica which is supposed to reduce pain. So far, only a headache, dry mouth and fogginess - I'm not sure how long I'll persist

Thank you for your caring message


May you and Tula enjoy the rest of your weekend

Hoping you find the magic that will take away your pain.

I have to say, dry mouth side effects drive me bonkers at night. Ugh hoping it's not effecting you that way

Hello coconuts


I'm drinking - well, sipping - a lot more than normal

Sometimes hard to work out whether I'm thirsty or hungry

Fogginess and head aching are also difficult. Just a side effect says nurses and Dr. My words are coming out back to front, or not meaning what I speak. Even to being opposite of what I want to say. Very frustrating


May you have a lovely (easier) week

fleur,
Hope the lyrica starts really working for pain relief.
Do the medical ppl think that side effects will lessen over time?

Finally sun came out after a 3-day nor'easter. Didn't rain every day, but so glad for nice weather.

Hello there


Three days without any sunshine!? Oh my. Happy for you to have sun out today

Apparently, after around two weeks, side effects ought to lessen after beginning Lyrica. If so, over halfway....

Thank you for writing. Wish you a lovely time in the sunshine

Fleur,
Glad to read that lyrica side effects are expected to taper off.
Another beauty of a day here. May do a little grocery shopping 🛒 or just walk Tula.

It’’s springtime there, right?
Hope you’re getting better rested for yourself.

Hoping the side effects wear off sooner rather than later. And hoping it does the job it's supposed to.

Yes, there, spring is here. Lots of blossom, perfumed air. Trust you'll get all the grocery items you want. You shall soon enjoy Autumn leaves


Thanks coconuts and there for hoping with me that the side effects reduce along with supposed pain relief. Still not happening


Think I'll discharge on Sunday

Had small iron infusion yesterday. Dr wants bone marrow biopsy, which is scheduled for 30th October. I'm surprised I could be seen so soon. Fully expected a much longer wait


Wish you both a happy day/night
