Have to get a trifusion line in first for my stem cell recovery. Its kind of like a picc line I was told but there will be three of them in my chest and the catheters are bigger. If any of you have had one any info or tips would be great. This irks me a bit, I have so much scar tissue from all my ports and stuff. Ill be sedated when they put them in though. Then its back to chemo. This break sure was nice. Although if it wasnt for the break I would be getting out of the hospital tomorrow instead of going in and I would be halfway done. Oh well. I was able to put 5 lbs back on so im only a few lbs under my pre-chemo weight. Tonight we are doing my sisters bday celebration since I will be in the hospital for her bday. Hoping to have a really great time, might even have myself a martini:)

This will be the last of my "easy" cycles before I have to start the high-dose. Can't wait to finish this up and be NED again, whether its for a year or for good. Hopefully for good though :)

I will be praying that everything goes successfully for you. No doubt, putting on those five pounds was a real accomplishment. During chemo, I used to worry a lot about losing too much weight. I had to really fight and focus on keeping the pounds on, which was quite a challenge when I had zero appetite.

Prayers and hugs,

Kelly

You are an amazing woman and your strength shines through.

Sending you hugs and positive energy.

I love this board everyone here has accepted me and knows what I am going through. This is the place were I dont feel so alone. :) I had a rough night last night from the anesthesia and pain medicine I was vomiting constantly all night. I used to have a really strong stomach. They just started my taxol drip about an hour ago, that with run for 24 hours and then Ill start the ifosfomide and carboplatin tomorrow. He switched from the cisplatin thank god. I got good news though he is only giving me one highdose treatment instead of 2 so after this cycle I only have one more treatment. yay. except he said its going to be 5 times the side effects and 1/10 patients end up in the ICU and hes scared im going to be one of them.

I'm so sorry that you had such a rough night last night. Nausea and vomiting are the pitts! I'm so glad you only have one more treatment. You can do it! When you're up to it, continue to let us know how you're doing. Although we are not physically by your side in the hospital (I wish we were!), you know that you are not alone and we're here to support you!

Hugs and prayers,

Kelly
