Jen's update-day 2 chemo


Recommended Posts

So far so good. Yesterday was 4 hours long and I was very nervous.

saline for a bit, Aloxi, Decadron, Lassix and mannitol.

VP 16 for 45 minutes Cisplating for 2 hours

Headache and bodyaches all night

Today vp16 only 2 hours ( I had them reduce the decadron from 10 mg to 4 as its too tough on me-up all night)

headache and sleepy so far. Dont feel myself, but

NO VOMITING so far in 28 hours!!!!!!!! A little buzzing in my ears.

Taking Zofran and ativan every 8 hours at home

Day three tommarow.

Thank-you for all of your feedback on all my other posts and for saying my pic was nice. You have all been kind and my true support.

Good news!! Congrats on day 2. See it's not that bad. You can make it, I know it. That decadron is wicked stuff, I hate it. And yes, by the way, a good looking brood you have there. Beautiful photo. Day 3 to come and after that it will be old news. Chemo days were special to me because I knew that what they were putting in my veins was killing the cancer, I helped it along with Shostakovich's 5th Symphony through my headphones as I was getting my chemo. Kill the cancer, kill the cancer. Hope you sleep better tonight.

Hi Jen,

I haven't been able to get on here. Glad to hear the news and how well you've made out. I do remember that my legs ached. They felt like a combination of restlessness & growing pains.

Good for you Jen. It's not as bad & some think. Hang in there & keep us posted.
