An update on chemo Suz

August 29, 2012 § 4 Comments

Suz has been having her first chemo this week and while she’s recovering from that I thought I’d update you on how she’s doing.

Her first day was more of an ‘Introduction to Chemo’ or’ Beginners Guide to Chemo’ or even, ‘Chemo for Dummies’ – now there’s a book that needs to be written. So it wasnt too bad. A few hours of being hooked up to some evil poison and hey, ho, there you go.

But her second day was really the hard stuff, the, ‘Chemo Advanced Course: Hard Core Chemo’. All day hooked up and an evening spent feeling very sick and unable to eat anything but toast – good old toast.

Tomorrow she has to go for an injection to stimulate growth of white blood cells and hopefully she’ll get some respite until the next round.

In the meantime, the fashionista that she is, she has bought a load of lovely hats for when she (temporarily) looses her beautiful  golden curly locks – here’s a preview:

  • The hats look great. Good luck with everything.

    Something about the shot to increase white cells- they CAN be very painful after they start getting the bone marrow going. It’s pain from IN the bones. I couldn’t take Aleve as I was on blood thinners, but another blogger said it worked great. I got no relief from hard core narcotics- but just a heads up about that- might want to ask the doc/nurses what they recommend 🙂 And let Suz know it doesn’t last forever… it can feel like it.

  • Right here is the perfect blog for everyone who hopes to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject which has been written about for years. Wonderful stuff, just great!
