Just as I was starting to feel like I was getting back up to par from the pneumonia (last x-ray showed clear lungs) I went had a bad reaction during chemo yesterday. I started getting sick within half an hour then it subsided for a few hours. Started doing the technicolor yawn again until I got home at almost 6, slept a little bit, then started getting sick again. Many banana bags gave their lives to my service before the home care nurse finally got the nausea to stop with an injection of zofram. Before that, even the slightest movement would get my stomach flip flopping faster than a politician in a debate!
During chemo, they kept hitting me with all different anti-nausea drugs, but nothing would stop it. This really came out of the blue on me. Nothing was different about any of the meds. My weight is a bit down, but about the same as when I started chemo two years ago. So, now I'm weaker and more exhausted than when I got home from the hospital.
