November 20, 2010

Thursday was Zometa day; labs were slow so I ended up spending almost 3 hours at the infusion center. Only bad lab was WBC, which was 3.7 instead of 4.0. No reaction to the Zometa. Friday was dex day with 10 mg. It's 3:30 am Sat. morning and I am still awake. Will need Ambien tonight but after that I will be ok until next dex day (next Friday).

November 5, 2010

Today is dex day; will probably be up all night; but I do have a DVD so I can watch a movie tonight; also have some project work that will keep me busy for a few hours.

I have read many of the other blogs and it seems that most initial symptoms are pain (mainly back pain), the unexplained breaking of bones, or being very tired. I had none of these.

My initial symptom was a gait and balance issue; I felt as if I was forever walking on a giant mattress. That's all. My primary care physician just tested for everything and in 5 weeks, MM was confirmed. To date, I have never had any pain; but the being tired symptom did come on after the initial visit to the primary care physician.
