just returned from my second chemo--10 more to go; this is what they put in my hydration bag this time: bag 150 ml with saline, 4 mg ativan, 4 mg decadron, 50 mg benadryl. seems to do the trick. no chemo now for almost two weeks. i was so hoping to be able to go back to work after the 3rd week, but now i'm not so sure. just so tired. didn't need neupogen shot like last time, so that's good. my port didn't work this time, that is, didn't draw blood, tho chemo could go in, so had labs done old fashioned way. it's a nuisance when things don't go rightl but i'm sure next time it will work.
feeling ok, not great. will have bag removed monday, which is when i usually start to feel worse. never can tell, though, with new chemos, etc.
hope things are continuing to go well. didn't take my ca 125 this time, probably because port not working properly, or they're just not looking at it so soon. who knows? forgot to ask.
