I'm in recovery but still have stage four melanoma, no breast cancer now. But I had both and had a lot of time lying down. Then I started almost daily yoga classes when Yoga Bear gave me the opportunity and I think it is an amazing gift. I love the studio and the people where I go an I mostly enjoy restorative classes. I can not do flow or too many standing poses yet. I used to do them before I got sick. I'm 70 years old and soo grateful to be alive.
Lately though I go to a class and walk back to my car (two or three blocks) and sit down and then am seized with enormous pains in my legs and lower back. Not cramps, not muscle but what is it? I have to take asperin or something . They go away after ten minutes or so.
This also sometimes happens after shopping. My activity is still limited and I have sciatica from arthritis but this is different. Any ideas?
You wouldn't believe how happy i have become to be alive. Two years ago I didn't think I would be. The cancer I have now, while metastatic is only evident in my lungs, not in my legs or back or anything.
I know I should tell the doc about this and I will. But I just thought I'd ask.
