Cycle 2a - put my audition for strictly on hold!
Wow!, what a difference a week makes. Had two sofa days last Monday/Tuesday, but bloods held up & after moving dates for the bank holiday I started cycle 2 yesterday. The combination of chemo drugs Gemcitabinee & Cisplatin are attacking the joints on my right side. Shoulder, elbow, hip & knee which has me shuffling around & needing help to stand. Real fatigue hit me for the first time after yesterday's treatment - I had nothing left in the tank & had to give in & let everyone else do stuff. My skin is now dry & scaley, my hair is falling out and appears to be finding it's way into every area of the house , even if I haven't been there! I still managed to cause a little mayhem in the unit, sat next to a retired London cabbie. We were told off for laughing to loudly!!! With me back on the steroids during chemo cycle & his natural chatty nature we had a lot to talk about, & my 7.5hours in the chair went very quickly. Woke this morning, sore & achey but able to move.
I hope you are all as well as you can be. Take care of you & yours.
