Actually, what a difference a few hours makes! I left for the hospital this morning a nervous, chittering wreck, not sure whether to be more scared of delaying the treatment or the treatment going ahead. And now here I am online briefly, on the other side of Chemo 4, not quite singing and dancing, but a great deal more relaxed and relieved. It all went ahead smoothly, blood tests ok enough, and the three needle moments survived.
It’s also incredible how different it feels being half way through the chemo! Yep – four done and four still to go. Psychologically it feels like a huge milestone. And even knowing I was on the brink of being halfway, yesterday and this morning, it is just not the same. It’s a new year and i have half the chemos ticked off now,
I will now switch to another type of chemo, and this one will have different side effects to the two I have been given, and perhaps a few new ones.
I have been busy documenting the side effects of these medications and that is a treat in store for the next few days. I will also post in the next days about the wonderful Port and how the chemo process differs when the port s used. Another treat to look out for!
But for now I am signing out for a while and back to the gallons of water to try and reduce the side effects which are heading their way towards me at breakneck speed. Time to plan the chemo treat, I think! 🙂
Thanks 🙂 🙂
