    Other Care (The gym): After a year of working I am finally able to get back to the gym. It has taken this long for my muscle pain to go down and be able to lift any weight. Starting out small and hoping to get back into shape. Its been only two months. Not loosing weight but am loosing fat and muscles are responding. Still out of breath each time with the trainer and the simplest of moves are hysterical as I have no balance and need to hold onto the TRX ropes but I can mostly get up off the floor without having to grab onto everything in sight. And bending down to pick things up is easer and I can hop without my ankles falling out from under me. Yay!

    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): Port removed in June 2018!!!! Woo hoo! Much faster recovery than having it put in. No pain meds other than Advil needed, used some ice paks when needed and slept on my back. Its July and the outside stitch just fell off. Scar is minimal. They were careful to use the same incision as when it was put in. Very glad for that. Doctor says rather than every three months, its okay to see me every four months...was hoping for a six months, but I get it.

    Side Effects (Muscle weakness and pain): Going off Prednisone after 8 months. Down from 20 then 10. Doc kept me on 5mgs for the last two months then down 1 to half mags every six days. Finally off for a week now. Super sore muscles and aches and pains but it's ok with Advil. Also have a lot of anxiety and that's a side effect too.

      I had the same side effects. Especially in my legs. I often felt like they were going to buckle underneath me. I walked a lot and took the stairs even though it was hard and my legs are much better now. Good luck to you.
