Hey all, thought I would catch you all up and pick your brains at the same time, especially Phrannie, because she has or is still dealing with the same problems.. Let me backup a bit. My original treatment plan was 3cycles of the nasty chemo cocktail, by infusion 2 drugs by port, and the 3rd drug via "the pump" 35 days of rads concurrent with chemo. But, that has changed, now I have not 3 cycles but 4 and no chemo with rads. Got through the first cycle virtually unscathed except for my long Fabio locks. Good news is I haven't had to shave but once every 8 or nine days and I'm saving a fortune on razor blades, shampoo and conditioner. Ok finished my 2nd cycle 8 days ago. Today I could eat a horse, however the mouth sores are at the bas of my tongue on the underside and hurt pretty bad. So, can't eat. Came up with idea decided to mix a smoothie, banana, pineapple chunks, milk, mixed berry yogurt . Problem, one of the ingredient set my mouth on fire was awful. I'm guessing it was the citrus acid in the pineapple chunks. I start my 3cycle a week from Thursday and I'm wondering if the sores will heal by then? And will the sores get worse with each cycle? Hope you read this Phrannie or anyone that has had similar experience . If it wasn't for the sores, I'm guessing from the cistoplasm or whatever that Nasty junk is, I would be coasting all things considered. First cycle I lost 12 lbs but packed 9 back on. This cycle I'm down 23. Have a Mic-Key-button but can only do 1500 cals in 12 hours. Any ideas or answers on any of this ramble?
In Christ, Kevin
