Had my first round of chemo yesterday. Long day...arrived at 830am and didn't get home until 430pm.
The entire process, although lengthy, was uneventful. Started out with Benadry, Pepcid, Steroid, Anti-nausea medicine. Next was 3 hour infusion of Taxol followed by 1 hour infusion of Carboplatin.
Like I said, all went well and today I have the red face flush but that's about it.
The infusion area is adjacent to the peds infusion area. There is a wall of pictures of their patients-mostly school pictures. There have to be at least 600 pictures on the wall. I just couldn't believe it. Did children always get cancer or is this something new that has occurred over the last 10 years or so?
Take Care and Be Well,
