Home from hospital this evening after developing "chemo toxicity" after my very last infusion last Thursday. Was severely dehydrated, lost 7 lbs. the last six days, was bedridden since Sunday, constant nausea and diarrhea which was mainly just liquid bile because i have not been able to eat anything.
I was given choice of outpatient fluids infusion or checking into hospital for closer monitoring and I did the fluids today and feel some better, but still can't eat. If I can't get some nutrition into me that sticks I am going to have to go into the hospital, they said.
Never had anything like this all during the last six months of chemo. Guess I got the worst for last.
And here thought I was going to be living it up this weekend with a margarita and celebration for finishing up chemo and finally posting something exciting to Pepe's weekly discussion.
I had never heard of the term chemo toxicity before I had it as a dx today. Learned it has five levels and I was at level 4.
