    Oh No (Update): Since my fall in August and breaking my right foot I have been in a cast every since. I go back on the 19th of Nov.and hopefully it will come off then. This no weight bearing has not been fun,but at least I can get around. It could have been alot worse.
    I hope everyone has a blessed day and I think of all of you often.

    Update on leg. On the 17th I fell and broke the tibia on the same leg I have been having the problem with. I hope when my leg heals that will be end of the problem. I can only hope.

      Good luck on getting a good dz. I also have dizziness and trouble breathing. They are say mine is because I also have emphysema and chemo intensifies these side-effects for me. No special leg problems though. Will be keeping the good thoughts for you!

      Thanks to all of you for your answers. It really helps to know others don't think I'm crazy. I just found out I'm going to have a ct on my head and lungs for the dizzyness and loss of balance and trouble still breathing. I will update afterwards. Again thanks for your replys. That is why I love this site so much. Everyone helping each other one day at a time.

      Right Barry-that's why I had strep for 5 months. All of me would have been better off in Mexico. I could have had my 'mother ship cancer' removed before it launched. I could have gone to a lab and got a strep test on my own-crossed the street and got the antibiotic. Probably all for about $75 dollars or less.

      If you do get a good primary care, they have 2 problems-they want to hunt for zebras and they don't understand simple things like dog and cat bites cause pasteurella and a person needs massive doses of Augmentin. If you get bit, and clear liquid runs out of a wound-get to an ER and beg for hospitalization and a truck load of Augmentin.

      Thanks everyone. I thought I was just being crazy with all these things going wrong. Going to Doctors has never been my thing since my younger years with a bad experiance. I am pushing my doctor cause even I know what is going on is not normal. Before surgery with the pressure meds I had my pressure was controlled. Hasn't been normal since. I welcome all of your advice. Thank you so much. I will update when I have some news. Again thank you.

      HI Dizzy - I'm a little late to this conversation but I have to agree with those who said call the doctor ASAP. I've always been healthy and have a high pain tolerance. My natural tendency is to grit my teeth and get through whatever's hurting me but I've learned that as a cancer patient, that's NOT the best path to choose. It's a learning curve for me - and probably for you too.

      Hang in there. Hope they figure out the cause and can fix it for you.
