Jennedy Posted February 14, 2021 Share Posted February 14, 2021 Since i was changed to Carboplatin, alimta and Keytruda i actually had ro leave the house 4 times this week. Monday was just a meeting with the NP to go over the chemo, side effects, etc. Tuesday they installed my port. That went relatively smoothly. Wednesday, I had a pleurex catheter installed. They drained a liter and said I should drain it every 2 days based on volume. Of course snow hit on the way home and my 15 minute drive took an hour and I really hurt by the time I got home. They did let my husband sit with me for both procedures. Thursday I was contacted by the pulmonologist office to schedule my follow up and was told the home health company would contact me. Friday I saw my onc and he asks if I have any questions. Um, yeah. What am I supposed to do with this catheter? I had no service during chemo so I couldn't follow up. Long story short, home health said Tuesday or Wednesday when they called TODAY. I believe it will be Monday. We are supposed to get a big snowstorm sometime Monday into Tuesday and I want it dealt with by then. The chemo itself went ok. Good thing I had miralax and stool softeners (part of a care page from a pediatric oncology nurse friend). I'm tired, a little nausea. Took a pill at the first sign but won't make Lexiecats mistake.
