Hi everyone. Last Friday I came down with flu-like symptoms with headache, sore throat, cough, and loss of appetite. I had an appointment with my Oncologist today and he checked me out and said there's been a virus going around.
Well, for some reason, I left the appointment feeling very uptight thinking that my Stage 4 had progressed. My sister who was visiting with me felt similar flu symptoms. We bought cough drops, Excedrin for our headaches, and the doctor prescribed Robutussin with Codeine. But for some reason I was very upset with the whole scenario and actually had dry heaves at home later that day. I live alone and had all kinds of thoughts going through my mind! My sister tried to help me to calm down, but I finally took a mild tranquilizer and finally about 5 hrs later, I'm calming down.
Has anyone had any type of experience like this? I think I need to tell my Oncologist how uptight I'm getting. My thoughts are running away from me and I hate it! Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks. Kats3
