As well as other side effects. So that means after having chemo since October, my ass is whooped. It used to be, earlier on, I didn’t feel so fatigued etc and it wasn’t until till about Tuesday or Wednesday after Friday chemo that I couldn’t get out of bed. I mean, I felt fatigued, just not that tired to the bone, breathing is an effort fatigue. Now I have that fatigue along with nauseating dizziness.
Chemo number 15 was yesterday. As I write this I’m laying in bed trying to drink as much as I can. This helps with my low blood pressure and it’s important for recovery. When I change positions I have to do so very slowly. Tonight my Neulasta injection will go off, bringing on bone and muscle pain. A necessary evil to help bring up my white cell counts. But I’ve only one treatment left, then prep for surgeries. I can do this!!
Unfortunately the side effects from chemo do not just disappear after chemo ends. I’ve been warned that several times. My thoughts ? At least I’ll be cancer free.
My tip for chemo patients – hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Oh, and never trust a fart 😳😳😳😳😳
