Today I shall begin the next phase of my adventure. Yes, I am scared.
We are scheduled to start at 2.15pm. The infusion will last for 2.5 hrs, the first 2 hrs or so will likely be the anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory, etc. Then the actual chemo drug will start. (5FU, Epirubicin & Taxol)
Dean will be going with me to keep me under control. We'll have to take some things to keep me quiet and occupied so I don't end up flashing Babette to everyone else there or some such thing...
We will be using my port for the first time today as well... that makes me a bit nervous as well...
Yesterday I took my first dose of homeopathic remedy for the cancer and am taking many herbs and such to help support my body during this. (yes, my Onc. knows all about the stuff! )
If anyone has a moment to think good thoughts and empower the chemo to do it's job and nothing but it's job, I'd greatly appreciate it!! My last chemo experience was almost 5 yrs ago now, with Mum and her bladder cancer... not the best experience! This will be much better. Has to be!!!
Be well all! I'll let you know how I am doing with this new stuff as soon as I can!
