ok i was on traceva for 2 months worked real well onc thought i could go down the surgury path so stopped using the drug and saw all the surgens but while i was on the last doctor i started coughing real bad and had very heavy chest doc rushed me to emergency thinking i was ahving a heart attack,i''ll sorten this down what i had was fluid on my lung (plurastic fluid up high )so it got drained just 85ml ha!!1 i can breathe now but this cough got sobad i was throwing up and i was having problems getting comfortable in bed to get sleep 2weeks and im back in hospital again more fliud on the lung 2.65ltrs they drained outa me ,and all the docs wanted to do all sorts of stuff to me thank god my main onc doc is the head guy at this hospital so its back just as bad as before so back on the traceva 150mg .so far 2months
the cough went quickly whitch was the good thing but the red face came just as fast i looked like i was sun burnt and then the pimple like sores came this time real bad toros arms face the itch is bad and then it real sore got a few hints from this site so i jioned up to share info .
i found that dairy and pastrys or out and real plian food is in forget the sauses anything with a strong taste sent me to the dunny i'm always close to the meds to stop this as i found if you keep on top of it you will feel better drink as much as possible 2-3 litres a day (all liquid caunts) and it gets hard to do this on the bad days hydolite tablets will help ,try your faverate drink mines pepsi max but the bubbles hurt so make it go flat first and hears a stupid one i can drink aldi chocolate milk low fat and only that brand the rest straight thew me, we all get mostly the same side effects and its good to share them as we all now it are life now ,we need to make it work the best way we can cause the altenative is a box 6ft under.
thats the motivator for everything when you have this cancer and that god for the traceva drug cause the other way aint that good, thanks for reading my story its good to get a lot off the mind and share it around im not the only one fighting till next time .live life !!!!frank down under
