Justakid Posted April 21, 2005 Share Posted April 21, 2005 Had Alimta infusion #4 yesterday. My colon cancer buddy was there getting chemo at the same time so I was able to stay calmer then usual. Guess after all the previous allergic reactions to chemo I still have anxiety attacks everytime. I'm able to control them and no one knows what's happening but me and my Mom the Xanax helps but I hate to take it before chemo cause it makes me dizzy and the attacks make me dizzy and chemo makes me dizzy. I'm just dizzy! Anyway, infusion went fine. Talked to the doctor about the last CT Scan and he said that the nodes and nodules have shrunk "a lot". I need to get a copy of the report. Saw a Cardiologist today, I still have the rapid heart beat problem (can't remember the technical term), he said it's caused by the cancer but I'm having a echocardiogram tomorrow to make sure everything is cool. Changing beta blocker meds, the one's I'm taking now may be causing some of my breathing problems that I'm having. Not feeling good today, something is making my stomach feel full and have nausea. Could be chemo, could be prednisone....who knows. Round 5 in three weeks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
