I don't know how many of you read my post about the extra chemo treatment they were giving me called cytoxen. The point of it was to wipe out my bone marrow to make room for stem cells since my first stem cell collection didn't go so well. The Dr said that its not very strong at all and they use it on about half of their patients and about once a year they have a patient that doesn't tolerate it and ends up being admitted into the hospital. Well this year that lucky person was me lol.
I got the infusion on Thursday and they sent me home on an IV pump because this type of chemo can cause you to urinate blood if it sits in your bladder. So I felt naseaous Friday but not too horrible until Friday night when I started throwing up. I threw up probably about 5 times that night and went to bed thinking I would wake up feeling better. Man was I wrong. I could't hold a sip of water down long enough to swallow it. I laid in bed all day knowing I should get up and go to the hospital but I was being stubborn and trying to ride it out.
When it got to the point where I couldn't roll over with out puking and when I stood up I felt like I was going to pass out I knew I needed to go to the hospital. Between all the traffic and construction It took over an hour to get here and I puked the whole way. By the time I got here I was in tears. They were giving me phenergan,ativan, zofran,and dilaudid and I was still waking up constantly puking. This was saturday night. They have decided to keep me here because they just started the highdose nupegen shots again(which also put me in the hospital) So it looks like Im going to be in here for quite a while.
