Chemotherapy Cycle 4 Week 1

Ollie13 profile image

Well this is my last cycle and it's not been too difficult but it's not been easy. The cycles have been quite predictable especially since I wrote how things were daily. Maybe that would he an idea for others. If my journey only helps 1 then job well done. So I had my last cycle last Thursday and on Friday had my Covid 3rd booster. This week I've bern very tired as usual and the dreaded thrush has come back. The medication the oncology nurse gave me at the start tastes appauling but I think that's the thrush. Had my last depo in my stomach so hope that's working. I have my appointment to see my consultant in early Nov and hope they get my PET SCAN done before. From there we decide what's next after this treatment results. So we carry on just wish I wasn't soo tired. Take care everyone.

Pleased to hear this cycle hasn’t been too difficult but hope your energy levels increase. My local Hospice runs a Fatigue and Breathless Group at which handy tips are shared, just wondering whether there is anything similar where you are as I found it helpful?

Hope your PET scan results prove reassuring.

With positive thoughts and best wishes 💐💕

Hey Ollie13 So good to hear from you. Hope you get the chance to get out and enjoy a bit of life now its over and as the fatigue eases. I'm sure your family and friends are all desperate to look after you however they can.
