    Hyper-Man got a reaction from Trencher in Hyperman R.I.P.   
    Thanks for all the well wishes everyone.
     
    I am already back home with mom. The pressure from the blood clot seemed to be the cause of right hand & arm issues. They have me on perkoset, Keppra for seizures and steroids for swelling. They are also going to setup home health care (PT & OT) to help with using arm. They gave me a  brace to wear at night to keep it from curling up and already have noticed a small improvement. I was able to hold a spoon in right hand to eat cereal, a first in weeks. Anyway, sorry for the flood of details but those who know me understand that's how my brain usually works.

    Something else I wanted to mention that I keep forgetting. I cannot begin to imagine how anyone could get through something like this without help from family and friends. My mom has been my rock. I don't  know what I would do without her.

    I've also stopped the cancer pills and will start a monthly immunotherapy infusion once I can safely stop the steroids.  They just have higher likelihood of side effects than the pills did. Blood clots are one of the common side effects of melanoma cancer.

    I'm back in the hospital again. The last year had seen slow progress with the melanoma cancer in my brain and body. 3 types of radiation treatments and oral pills. Last month's followup MRI and PET scans showed improvement in all areas. 2-3 weeks ago I started gradually losing control/dexterity of my right arm and hand again. I thought and hoped it was a pinched nerve in my back so went for a massage last Thursday. No change so oncologist scheduled new MRI for Monday. It found one spot grew from 7mm to 35mm so they did surgery on Tuesday. Looks like most was a blood clot. Gotta learn how to use my right hand again.  And yes, I am right handed. Fun fun fun.

    Well, after 2 rounds of brain radiation treatments my hair has thinned out considerably, my sense of taste/smell has been reduced and my eyesight and hearing have been affected asymmetrically (music always sounds partly out of tune now).  Thankfully my 10 finger typing is getting closer to being back to normal.  I still can't drive though and with my cancer drug regimen I don't see returning to work anytime soon.  Luckily I had upped my short term disability to the max 26 weeks.  Coincidentally the end of which happens to be when the lease is up on my apartment meaning I will soon be moving back with Mom.  And that means if/when I return to my job it will be working remotely since her home is nearly 40 miles away.  Cancer sucks.

    Thanks for the kind words of encouragement everyone. Today is the first chance I have had to be in front of a full size keyboard in over a week and it feels good!
     
    I had a reoccurance of Melanoma cancer... this time in my brain. Probably a lucky break since the symptoms presented like a stroke. They've cut out the big/easy piece and have just done a hires/3d MRI of my brain stem so they can target with radiation next week. The next big hurdle is the results a PET scan of eveything else in a couple of weeks.
     
    I am much better than just few days ago. The fine motor dexterity and strength of my right hand is the biggest issue right now. Typing this was good exercise.
     
    I know I am not a frequent contributor to this part of the forum but you guys always put a smile on my face.

    I'm sorry you're having to go through that again, Hyper-Man.
     
    Hopefully this is the last time you'll have to deal with this recurring villain.
