Cancer equals Pain

Rough morning. Her back was really hurting - it does not seem to be responding to the gabapentin and steroids the way her arm and neck did. Probably will get another medication from Kaplan today, as well as get a scan scheduled to diagnose the back issue.

It's becoming more evident that the tumors and cancer aren't playing nice. The skin tumors never hurt her, and she couldn't feel the brain or lung tumors (she has no recall over the stroke from the burst tumors). But cancer of the spine - those things hit nerves and that means pain and that is just not good. It is debilitating in every sense of the word, she can't think or do anything. She had a bit of a freak-out episode she was so frustrated by it. So we've got to get a handle on this.
