Last chemo was on Friday October 29th. Usual after effects - i.e. OK Friday and Saturday up to the evening; not too bad Sunday until the afternoon. As usual started to feel yukky and went to bed. Had a bit of cornflakes Monday morning and then nothing and off to bed again. Taking anti sickness pills 3 times a day from chemo, Metclopramide). Monday night, sick as a dog, vomiting nothing even after a sip of water and up all night visiting the bathroom, retching until my diaphragm hurt! Then severe headache and - hallucinations! Music and strange visuals like a new age movie. Tuesday morning phoned the Poole cancer care centre and went in. Was looked after brilliantly by doctor and nurse. Re hydration drip, pain killer and anti sickness drip and stayed in overnight. MRI scan on the Wednesday morning first thing to check for brain mets or other abnormality. Nothing untoward found - brain seems to be present and correct! Upshot is I was told that I had been "Super dehydrated". The hospital doctor is going to suggest to my consultant that he change the anti sickness medication. After my "holiday" from chemo for 3 rounds, treatment seems to be hitting me harder than before. Bah! hate it! To add insult to injury, the site of the canula got infected and I've been on antibiotics, additionally have developed a cough which feels a bit like a chest infection - but been on antibiotics which work for chest infections - so maybe not bacterial. Don't think it's covid though as eating well now and tasting everything nicely!
Haven't had a lot of energy since this episode so no walk/jogs or swimming to date since. Being kind to myself and trying to take it easy (not really in my nature).
Well, that's my story, not awful exactly but not great either. Take care everyone.
