Four years since my nephrectomy to remove my left kidney. I wish I could say my head is better since removing the cancer but I don't feel it is. Weight issues, thyroid issues, having you walk with a walking stick to keep balance...WTF.  I was so happy when I was losing all the weight, but it wasn't me. It was the cancer. How do I wrap my head around that? 


  I've purchased a walking stick for myself.  I'm loving it in comparison to my Hurrycane.  It gives me the stability I am needing.  I also like that I can rest my hand on the top versus gripping a can handle.   If I get really wild I can extend it and use it as a trekking pole.  So many options. I'm finding that I can walk longer with it as well.  Which is a good thing.  With the cane, my back would get tired but with the walking stick, it isn't happening. Which is a good thing.  

Rock you like a Hurrycane...

This thing has been my companion for the weekend. I have been feeling very unsteady for awhile and decided it was time to break out the Hurrycane. I hate it and love it at the same time. It definitely gives me some stability while walking though.  I don't know what's going on. If it's a vitamin deficiency, or my Hashimotos flaring? I go for an appointment in June for my 6 month check up.  It seems like ever since my nephrectomy my health is not where it should be. It will be 4 years on May 31st...*sigh* I just want to feel better.
