Don Wood Posted July 23, 2004 Share Posted July 23, 2004 Today, Thursday, we went in for the day. Lucie first had the Navelbine, her second round, and then the Aredia, her monthly IV for bone mets. The Navelbine takes less than 30 min. The Aredia is supposed to take 3-4 hurs, but it only took about 2 hours. I noticed the drip was awfully fast and I asked the nurse about it. She turned it back. Shortly after that, Lucie got nauseous although they had given her nausea med. It could have been the combination of IV's but we think it is from the fast drip. Anyways, we complained so they would note it for next time. They were overloaded today and I think they were trying to vacate the room! We are not necessarily for long IV's but we don't want to make her sick either. Anyways, she took some Gaviscon, which seemed to help and I gave her a nausea pill when we got home. She did fine. We were able to go out to dinner and she ate very well. Must be the company (LOL). We will see the onc next week and see where we go from here. Lucie is supposed to have next week off from chemo. The spot on her right lower rib is giving her some discomfort, but it seems to be managed with Norco once or twice a day, so we are hoping that she can delay the radiation on that spot until chemo is done. Looks doable so far. I will keep you posted on her progress. Don Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
