I was up at 6:30am this morning . my daughter picked me and Charles up at 8 and dropped us off at the hospital. She had to go to some of her college classes. I had labs at 8:15 saw my oncologist after that and asked if there is anything I could use for the breakthrough pain bacause the patch wasn't helping it all. He gave me a perscription for vicoden. Sure hope my stomache can handle it. Alot of oral meds make me sick . For some reason the area where they put the port was very painful today and the incision up by my neck is red and inflamed so he put me on an antibiotic for the next 7 days. 4 times a day. that should be interesting trying to remember the pills having both chemo and fibro fog . LOL I wonder how many I will have left over at the end of 7 days.
My blood counts were all good so that was a blessing. He also scheduled a cat scan for the 28th of September. He said that if the cancer has shrunk quite a bit I might only have to do 4 cycles instead of 6 before the radiation. (positive thinking and prayers please.)
Then it was up stairs for my treatment. They started me on the benadryl, Anti-Nausea med and steroids. I didnt get steroids last time so I was a little surprised by that one but it explains why I have been hungry today. I might be the only cancer patient to gain weight instead of losing it. LOL
We finally got done around 4:30 and I am feeling pretty good even managed to stop at our cell company and went and picked up my medication from the pharmacy. Maybe this time wont be as bad as last time. I will keep my fingers crossed. lol
Thanks all of you for your continued prayers and your encouraging posts. You have no idea how much they mean to me. I read them over and over and it never fails to lift my spirits. You are all so wonderful and I am so glad that I have found you. You are all the greatest and I love you all
