Domestic challenges

Ironing, loading the washing machine and washing up are causing problems. I have found that standing and twisting is setting off pain in my hip. The skin in the area that was irradiated has become sore, hopefully it will heal soon. I’m taking neurofen plus intermittently, even though it brings on odd pains in my head. They were scaring me, but as soon as I stop taking it, they disappear. The main gain seems to be a reduction in the tender, bruised feeling; more to do with bringing down the inflammation rather than the element of pain relief. Tiredness is setting in, again due to the difficulty of carrying out basic tasks. I’m fine when I’m sitting down doing something, but shopping, stairs and domestic tasks hurt.
