1st chemotherapy almost 3 weeks ago. I felt very well cared for and can honestly say it went better than expected. I was there for a long time but this was fine with me as I didn't really have any idea how long it would take. However I did feel very rough on day 4 and increasingly so on day 5 with sickness and self pity at an all time high! The lesson to pass on is that I should have telephoned help line sooner because my sickness was brought under control once I got back on the medication. Next after about another week constipation was pretty bad but once again the help line sorted me out, probably should have telephoned a day sooner!
The last thing to share is that during the self pity/sickness stage and for a week or so after, I could not log onto this forum. I sometimes hovered over it but something in me that felt almost physical stopped me clicking. Perhaps it's because I needed to take a step back from everything connected to my fairly recent diagnosis?
Anyway just want to say thanks to everyone who's shared experiences on here helped me, and if I disappear for a while, I will be back! Xxx
