A week has passed since my first chemotherapy infusion. Thankfully I haven’t had awful side effects yet. The first four days I was very tired, felt dizzy and drugged. My appetite has been low, which is very concerning since I have lost a lot of weight already. Other side effects: headaches, chills, sores on my tongue and acne on my face.
When I left the hospital, I had FOLFIRI pumping in me every minute for 48hrs. Below are images of this pump. I wore it as a cross-body purse until Friday afternoon; when all the medicine had dispensed. It weighs about a pound or two. If I wanted, I could have showered with it, but that would have been too much work. I slept with it okay and thankfully Harper didn’t want to pull on it.
This week I have been busy with researching a nanny and nutrition for cancer patients.
