This past Monday I started my first chemo treatments and my daily radiation. I can say I was so fearful of all of it! The unknown. I go to two different treatment faucilities and everyone from the receptionist on is so professional and informative. I was very impressed. Even patients were very nice to me and very positive.
I haven't really had any real side effects from radiation or chemo a little nauseous but not bad. The bad thing is I am also diabetic, type 2 oral meds. Now these last few days I have had sugars of 400! I reported to the primary on that and he started me on insulin as well as the oral meds. 2 hours after the injection I'm down to 124 but that was before I went to radiation this afternoon. Now I'm back up to 254. So called doc back and we will just continue on the insulin as well as the oral meds. No treatments on the weekends so it will be interesting to see what my sugar does then..
