Guest DaveG Posted June 29, 2003 Share Posted June 29, 2003 My wife and i went out for Friday Nite Fishfry. While at the restuarant, I began to feel "funny" (dragged out and tired). I nibbled at my salad, at my baked potato, and at the fish. I hardly touched the glass of lemonade. By the time we got home, I was really dragged out and finally called the Oncologist on Call at the U of Wisc. Cancer Center. At 10:00 PM I was in the emergency room of the local hospital getting an IV, as the conclusion was that I was dehydrated. I ended up spending most of Saturday in bed, with absolutely little to no energy. Today I got up and went to church, after which, my wife dragged me out to Walmart, where she bought ice cream, orange juice, and any other thing that she thought I would eat, as my appetite has be been just plain lousy. Everything my wife fixed for me yesterday either had no taste, or was too spicy, although thse were meals I usually eat quite well. I get so I really hate going through all this every three weeks, just trying to beat LC. I am getting nervous because my next chemo cycle is 3 days before the golf outing I have organized, and that's exactly what it took for the chemo to hit me this time, 3 days. I am planning to limit my activities during that period, to just doing stuff for the outing and not playing golf, except on the day of the outing. I was really down yesterday. I was depressed and had no interest in any outside activities. I just stayed in bed most of the day. Chemo and Cancer Suck. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
