I went Thursday and Friday for my Cisplatin and Taxol treatments. Both were long days, but where uneventful. Thank goodness. My labs remain good. My liver enzymes are back. To norrmal, so I continue on my daily blood thinner shots. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the insurance to approve them for six more months. I still have no symptoms of the blood clots. I do not know why approval has tobe so hard. Actually the cost is probably the big factor.
The good news besides no reactions is that my CA 125 dropped from 3240 to 2560. So that means that the chemo is still working for me.
Last session I had nausea for about 10 days continuously. I took Emend for three days. Then Zofran first and then compazine. I am going to use the compazine first this time, as it works better for me. I sure hope to have less nausea.
I also joined the " Bald is Beautiful" group. My hair fell out the previous three times starting at day 12. This time it was day 17. Don't know if the blood thinner shots made it stay in longer? But it fell out all within 36 hours. I pulled out mt stash of hats.
I had to take my sister to an ambulatory care while she was visiting. The waiting room was filled. We had to wait two hours before she was taken to an exam room. Two days after we were there I started with a cough. Today I am also hoarse. The oncologist did give me an antibiotic for 10 days. He usually tells me to go to my primary physician, but I told him she was off on Wed, and I was at Moffitt all day Thursdayand Friday, so I could not get anything until Monday. He did write me a prescription. Another hassle!
Hope all is well with everyone else. In peace and caring.
