Patty Gottlieb Posted September 13, 2007 Share Posted September 13, 2007 Monday, Sept. 10, 2007 was my first chemo for 5 1/2 hours. It wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. Although, my personality seemed to change from the steroids - 5 the night before and 5 the morning of the CHEMO. The steroid was called DEXAMETHASONE (4 MG. per tablet) I NEVER EXPECTED THAT REACTION. My personality changed. (The devil made me say those things. haaaaah) Thank you to all the kind people for posting with my Kerri. She felt so much better. The 2nd day I slept most of the day; last night I had to get up from bed and take Percoset and 2 Tylenol (not at the same time) but from Flu like symptoms. My husband has been mixing drinks with APRICOT SEEDS (APRICOT SEEDS ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP FIGHT CANCER) and BERRIES. HUGS, PATTY On this site, APRICOTS.COM, if you go into Kernal Products, you can get the seeds for $9.95 for a half pound. Ground 7 a day, in a coffee nut grinder, and mix with drinks or food. i like it in ice-cream. Enjoy Sept. 20, 2007 (Thursday) Had Medi-Port put in today. Actually, the incision is 2 1/2 inches, and shrinking. I only had 2 inches of chemo left and my littlie veigns collapsed. Don't fret. I'll be okay. It's 3 days later now. Feeling better. The port is made of TITTANIUM and covered with galvananized rubber. Stitches are clear colored. The hospital staff say it will be much easier to receive my chemo, when I resume OCTOBER 1st. Hugs to all. Patty Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
