Hi all, Started the new chemo last week. Did pretty good the days I took it because they gave me anti nausea meds with it. Then Sunday night I got terribly sick. Nausea, vomitting and diarehea, all at once. I went to the hospital as my chemo doctor ordered and had IV fluids and IV anti nausea meds. I feel much better. They put me on zofran. It was $360 for 7 pills. With my insurance I still had to pay $40. That is ridiculous. What do people do that don't have insurance? I feel so bad for them. Well, say a few prayers for me. i don't want to stay sick the whole time. I also got my staples out yesterday from where they put the infusaport in. It's a lot different than the Hickman cath I had. This one is completely under the skin, which is much better. My surgeon wants to see me in six weeks, hoping that the chemo will have shrunk the tumor by then. I hope he does surgery and removes this beast at that time, but I don't know yet. Just keep me in your prayers, as I do all of you. Love ya guys. Couldn't make it without you.
