I find myself looking forward to going in a strange kind of way, I like to know what is happening with my counts and know that they are roughly what I expect. I am fortunate enough to be just on aspirin and venesection and need to go to the hospital every 6-8 weeks.
The part I do really struggle with is the emotion of being around some of the other patients, even more so when I need a venesection and see other patients in the day unit having their chemotherapy. I am finding it even harder every time I go, even though I know what to expect. It takes me a few days to settle down after my appointments I feel so emotional like I could cry if someone said boo to me and I am not usually an emotional person.
Would be interesting to hear how others feel.
