Hi all, Well I had chemo yesterday and they also put me on round the clock morphine and upped my zofran. Well, got up to go to chemo this morning and I got really sick. I started vomiting, even with taking the medicine. I tried to call the chemo doctor's office and they were in a meeting, so we went ahead and went in. I thought they would just give me the nausea med and do chemo. Well, after I got there I vomitted again. They took me back and called the doctor. They wanted to stop this round, so they disconnected my 5FU and didnt give me the other one they were supposed to. They gave me IV fluids again and nausea meds and I came home. I also had the reaction to the cold last night. I was taking 3 little pills and I got my drink too cold and my throat starting closing off. I almost choked on 3 little pills, so from now on no cool drinks. I'd rather drink them warm than go through that again. Also, I didn't have my gloves on this morning and my hands went numb, not tinkling, but numb. I guess all the side effects are hitting at once. They made me an appointment with my chemo doctor for FEb 23rd and my next chemo for Feb 24th. I hope he doesn't stop the chemo. Anyone had any experiences like this? I hope that maybe he will just lower the doses some. I know that I need to have it. I guess I'll have a little break, but it looks like no trip for me and my husband. This morphine stuff sucks!!! Please say a prayer for me.
