I also like Biofreeze and Lidocaine OTC. But when I recently had an itchy rash I went to my Dermatologist and got a prescription ointment plus she recommended Zyrtec and Allegra. I have PsA, Sjogrens, IBS and Hashimotos.

My balance is improving. I’m just so scared to fall again because I have osteoporosis. I am a retired Physical Therapist so I am a very cooperative patient! I stay to the bitter end then insurance throws me out! I see my Oncologist after each scan. I like her very much. I am in Colorado and am experiencing excellent care.

I had a right lower lobectomy last May for adenocarcinoma. It was done via robotic arm. I don’t remember trying to catch a breath being difficult because everyone was shouting at me to wake up! The chest tube came out easily a few days later. After that I went to Rehab for 2 1/2 weeks because I had a small stroke in January which left me with imbalance. I came home with a walker , then graduated to a cane with Physio. Finally, I am starting to feel better this month and walk without the cane. Just got signed off to drive yesterday with the Neurologist. I am afraid of falling since the only notice I had of the stroke was falling down the stairs and breaking ribs and 3 vertebrae. Have a CT scan every three months. Don’t dwell on having cancer. Look forward to each day when you are able to do something new.

I had lung cancer surgery on May 30. They removed the right lower lobe. Subsequently, I had an infection in the liver and was on a drain. One of the antibiotics caused a seizure and I had to be taken to hospital by Emergency Services. Off the antibiotics now, and the PICCline and the drain to my liver. I had had a small stroke in January, which I didn’t even notice. But my balance was shot. I’m going to Physio twice a week. Have graduated from a walker to a cane. No chemo – we’re on a wait and see because I have a number of autoimmune diseases. EEG next week and appt with Oncologist in October.
I have Sjogrens too and I was getting a chest scan frequently from m.y Cardiologist. He kept spotting something in my right lung and we thought it was the Sjogrens but this time I got a shock. It was lung cancer so I had a lobe removed in May. Add to that I had a stroke in January and I now have an infection on my liver! I am only saying this is possible, but rare. I also have itchy ankles. Primary problem is Psoriatic Arthritis. Have you tried an OTC cortisone ointment on your itch? @marylou705
