Glad that you are keeping moving. It helps with the neuropathy and just feeling better. As to the wafer and back adhering, I make sure the bag is empty (important as even a little bit of product can cause pulling and irritation from the wafer) and I tuck it into my shorts to keep it from bouncing too much. So far haven't had an issue with the wafer coming off.
Thanks for your posts. I feel 100% today (with the bag of course). I was in a cold office yesterday and I'm in one right now and my fingers and hands are in good shape. Of course that will only last until Wednesday morning. But a couple of days being 100% really helps.
The wafer was fine - I changed it yesterday after six days - that's the longest I've had a bag one, and the change took under ten minutes which is about the best I've ever done. What helps is a 15 hour fast.
So yes, I tucked it into my shorts after emptying it out and everything was fine.
I was sore this morning though. Some box exercises on Friday afternoon that I haven't done in several weeks. It's the good type of sore. So back to infusions this week and I hope that I can survive #3. Temps look to be around freezing for a while so that's really good news.
The hip pain went away in a day or two. I'm guessing that I just picked up something that was heavier than I should have picked up and carried. I generally carry my gym bag with my left hand and it can weight up to 25 pounds. This with a backpack that can be up to 15 pounds when I'm carrying a couple of laptops and other gear. I'm going to try doing some abs exercises though I'll keep the counts low. I usually like to start off with 200 but I think I'll try 20 today.
