Well, like many have said the treatment bus ride has been rough, but seemed to go by fairly quickly. I think the long train ride back to "normal" will take more time, god knows I am not a patient man.
I am down to 5 radiation treatments left and even though I know I will survive them I am not looking forward to the week. My throat is so sore and burned inside. As many of you will recall nausea has been my biggest demon, and now the last 5 to 10 days I feel I may be starting to get a handle on it.
I am currently not taking any antinausea drugs, pain drugs or anything but pallative care. A lot of my issues were nutrition related (down 50+ lbs)and I am currently living on about 30 ounces of malt o meal and some minimal food additives, ie sugar, fruit, lots of water, unfortuneately my caloric intake is around 1000 only about 1/3 of what I need but it is keeping me alive and bringing stability to my digestive system.
I don't know why we use such a small tube for pegs, I would have like to have had one I could drop a hamburger through, and I know I would be better off now.
I hope everyone has a good week, and I am looking forward to being on the train soon, next stop...."normal".
