Addie Posted June 25, 2004 Share Posted June 25, 2004 I think it was the amifostine. I had chemo Mon., Tues. and Wed. and then a Neulasta shot yesterday, along with the first radiation treatment. But then today, I had the first amifostine shot prior to radiation. I took a Zofran pill - per instructions - a half hour before the shot, which was given just before 3:30 this afternoon. Radiation is daily at 3:45. On the way home, my hubby said, "Are you okay with going to the store?" I was pretty wiped out last night and today...but we needed to go, so I said okay. Well....I lasted long enough to pick out a couple of things and then went back to the car while he finished the shopping. On the way home.....I got sick in the car. I'm working on a ginger ale, but it's well past dinnertime and nothing appeals. I'm going to try to eat a banana or something....but I'm gonna have to figure out something more efficient to counteract the nausea. It's got to be the amifostine...as up to this point, I've had NO nausea.....and I have to get that shot every time before radiation. Gawd, I hate being sick. I have the next two days to regroup without any treatments....but my DH leaves early tomorrow morning for Arizona for 5 days....and I'd sure like to feel better than I do right now if I'm gonna be on my own.
