Glenn is in his third week of treatment. He's had one Carbo/Taxol treatment and 13 radiation treatments so far.
Nothing unexpected thus far. Throat pain and mucus starting to increase. Taste leaving but he still eats some things. Drinks Gatorade throughout the day.
Again, I'm so grateful for the PEG and Glucerna being in the house. The transition wasn't very stressful and maintaining nutrition is so important for a diabetic.
Hair just starting to come out today. Saturday, my son's girlfriend will come over and shave his head (she's a hairdresser and has a good clipper/shaver etc.)
Did anyone on Chemo NOT lose their hair?
He's had hiccups off and on for a couple weeks now. MD prescribed 1mg Ativan q12hrs. Doesn't work but 2mg q12 works fine. He's going to fess up to taking more than prescribed, tomorrow.
Although they've given him BMX and Magic Mouthwash, baking soda and salt water seems to work just as well if not better. Wouldn't have known about that if not for reading here.
I myself had a root canal last Thursday and got put on Clindamycin which is nauseating me. I'm looking longingly at Glenns Zofran and Compazine.
