I HAAATE decadron!
I've only gained 4 pounds on the scale, but my stomach feels so bloated and fat ALL the time. I'm eating even when I'm not hungry, eat to the point of feeling simply gross. I'm having muscle cramps in my hands, feet, and legs.
On one level, the decadron makes me feel totally anxious and jittery. I'm impatient (a struggle for me anyway), grouchy. And then there is another level of rads fatigue...jittery fatigue, yuck!
I can feel the roundness in my face, feel it in my feet, feel it in my LE places.
On the plus side, my rads onc said I could start tapering off whenever I'm ready. So I reduced my dose yesterday by 2mg. I'll stay with that till I see him again on Tuesday. Also on the plus side, only 5 treatments left, one week. I'm almost done, and the countdown begins.
Thank you all for listening and letting me whine.
