Mums not doing very well on the topo, she has been really poorly, and keeps being sick despite different concoctions of anti sickness meds. And today we found out her platelets are to low for her third lot tomorrow However she has only has two treatments,from the first cycle, she has hers for 3 weeks then a week off.
I hope it works for her , and they can get the sickness under control , because at the moment she is miserable, she is on morphine patches because she is suffering from pain, and the ascites is still ever present and has to be drained every 3-4 weeks, I think this is why she is pain.
But she lives to fight another day xx Liz xx
I copied and pasted the above from the ovarian board.
I saw mum today and she is bed bound :( she has thrown up worse than ever today , but she is waiting on the new sickness meds so hopefully they will kick it into to touch.
Before mum started this new chemo , she said she felt the best she had felt in a long time,although she was on steroids then, which have now run out, we even went out to lunch for a few Sundays in a row ,so it is really upsetting to see her in this state.
