Feeling Pretty Awful . . . Chemo Saturation Point !!!!!!
October 15, 2012 § 2 Comments
Over the last week I have been feeling pretty ordinary. I feel like I have reached saturation point with the chemo and drugs – and just feel sick most of the time. I feel sick in my stomach and in my head – this funny sicky headache thing.
When I started down this track they warned me that the last three chemo doses are likely to be more difficult than the first few. And they are right. I take the anti-nausea tablets and I guess they work for a while but I wake up each day with the same awful sick feeling. There isn’t much I feel like eating – so that’s a struggle. The metallic taste has come back with vengeance. I thought that by drinking heaps and heaps of fluid that I might avoid it, but alas not. I just end up nauseous, feel like I’m eating metal and get up all night to go to the toilet.
After dose four I am also finding that my bones are aching. I was warned this might also happen but until the last dose of chemo I have, thankfully, managed to avoid it.
I’m also having lots of weird dreams – they seem very vivid at the time but I never seem to remember the details when I get up.
So I guess this is how things are meant to be – no point complaining. Just get on with it !!!!
