Met with the medical ongologist and nurse. Looks like I start chemo next week unless anything comes up.
The Chemo they have planned for me is Cispaltin, Doxcetaxil, Fluoracil then Pegfilgrastim / Neulasta to boost my immune system. I have the handouts the hospital provided but wanted some real life exprience?
I am nervous about the picc line but then I don't like needles (who does:-<). I did go get my hair cut short as the nurse stated i will lose my hair and I did not want to wake to mising large clumps of hair. I know it will grow back but it was a big deal for me since I was happy with my long hair.
Good news I get to do the chemo treatments at the MD Anderson regional care center at CHRISTUS St. John Hospital. So I am hoping I can drive myself or is that just foolishness and wishful thinking on my part?
