I had my pre-chemo appointment yesterday, the nurse was very nice, had a tour of the chemo suite which has four bays with five chairs in each. She gave me my chemo card and record book and our parking permit, I get my blood card on Thursday. She took my bloods and then asked about how I lost my son. I explained that he had a chest infection, one minute watching Eastenders and the next in intensive care, sedated until he passed away 18 days later. They tried many different anitbiotics but couldn't break the infection, so she understood my concerns about the treatment I'm going to have after seeing how quickly things can go wrong.
The problem for me is I'm so tired a lot of the time, to be more tired doesn't sound much fun, I also still have some pain post op, in the same spot, tender to touch since my first operation, it has a bruised feeling and I'm fed up with it especially as it is worse since the second op. I no longer have that horrible pain on the left where my cyst was which is a relief, but I'm not pain free, as my skin feels tender near my scar in one place and I've got some eczema type patches where I had my original keyhole and where I had a boil that burst.
She said it takes about half an hour to deliver the Carboplatin but expect to be there for most of the afternoon. The oncologist wants to see me before each cycle, and has not said when she will want a CT scan, if it will be midway or after chemo cycles are complete. As a needle hater, my veins are not particularly cooperative and never have been, I think that worries me most. She said I must drink plenty of fluids tomorrow and the morning of the chemo, they will give me anti sickness which contain steroids and not to have large meals.
Oh well fingers crossed.
