Hi Ladies... Hope you're all doing okay 💗💪🏼 x
I had chemo 3 on Friday... I was doing relatively okay until Monday! I was so weary and slept a lot of the day... Made it until about 11 pm and then I started vomitting... By the morning I had a high temp and ridiculously unwell... I'm now in hospital! (Again!!🤒🤕) My neutrophils have gone very low and they've put me in a side room!! Hopefully the doc will let me out tomorrow! The doctor mentioned reducing the dose of my chemo as I've been unwell after all 3 cycles... To be honest, I think it would be easier if I didn't have any more!!!! 🤒🤕😂
Take care everyone x
What a relief, Mrs Fingers 😄 It's so good to knock the chemo sessions off the list, isn't it? Hope you're feeling okay.
Thanks Georgie, that nail balm looks the business 😉
Stay warm ladies and 💪💪
Georgie here from August, but I write more on the June thread. Long story short, but I finished chemo early because of severe side effects and in hospital 3 times.
Wanted to give you a tip about cold heads! It can be freeeeeeeezing cold can't it!
I have taken to wearing a hoodie to bed, and also around the house in the day...... the hoodie keeps my neck warm, as it's another part that gets really cold for me. Often wear a sleep hat as well. Hoodies are easier to pull on or take half way off, if you see what I mean? I am getting lots of hot flushes in the day and night (thank you chemo!!!......) and sometimes I just partially pull back my hood and it all cools down nicely. Then when I wake up in freeze mode again, I pull it over again and zip up the hoodie!
Also, can I recommend a nail-saving cream to all those going on to Docetaxol, aka T?
Its quite a new product, and expensive but worth every penny. It's called polybalm, and here's a link to the website with info. Polybalm.com - worth a try!
Warm (especially your heads!). Wishes,
Georgie Gee xx
