After 5 rounds down I pretty much have the flow down, although there are always some surprises that can pop up it’s helpful to know what’s coming for the most part.
Tuesday: Chemo Day- exhaustion beyond belief
Wednesday & Thursday- tired but decent (pump removal Thursday)
Friday- Pretty good
Saturday- Some Saturdays have been eh, a few have been super rough...like this round.
Sunday & Monday- The worst days
Tuesday- Can start to feel my body crawling back
Wednesday- Nearly there...
Thursday- A switch flips! I feel human again!
Then I have Thursday- Tuesday before I start it all again.
Loss of taste for a few days before of steroid
Inability to sleep
Stuffy nose from steroid
GI issues (enough said)
Cold sensitivity which makes it nearly impossible to stay hydrated until I can drink room temp drinks
Can’t touch things from fridge or freezer or wash hands with cold water
Lack of energy
Scar tissue pain
That’s all I can think of for the moment.....
Oh yeah- chemo brain!!! ;)
And now for some cute pictures:
