on November 27th....gawd that is a long time away! Onc checked me all over, said my salivary glands are very inflamed, but thinks the further way from chemo I get, they will get better (I'm telling you guys, these glands make me look like a squirrel packing nuts away in my cheeks and throat for winter).
Onc won't pull my tube till I gain 5 lbs....if I hit 90 before my next appointment to get my port flushed (a month from now), I can come in early and they'll make arrangements to get my tube pulled. I told him I wasn't going to be using the darn thing, but it's like he's bribing me to gain weight...(he really doesn't have to, I'm eating anything I can comfortably eat now). Learned yesterday, that acorn squash HURTS...weird, you'd think that would go down easy...but it stings so bad!
When he checked my mouth he says he thinks I have a case of thrush going, so got another prescription of Diflucan for that...hopefully this will kick in, and my mouth will quit stinging when I eat.
Busy week...saw the ENT Monday, Onc today....now I don't have to go see any Dr.s for a whole month!! I'll be so lonely LOLOLOL...
