Day four did not start out well for me at all. I woke about 3:00 am with constipation again ( I took 2 senekots before I went to bed) I was nauseaus, and my hands felt like balloons. I had been drinking a lot of water yesterday but hadn't had any water since I went to sleep. Around 6:00 am I finally took the meds the oncologist told me to get for nauseau. (zofran and compatible). I went back to sleep for a while. I felt human again around 10:00. Will the days get better as I go on? Monday , Tuesday, and Wednesday I did fine.

Thanks for any suggestions and/or encouragement.

Awe Pat, that sucks. Seems around day 4 was when Eleanor was the worst too, ugh.

Hope the rest of your day improves, and continues to do so

Hugs and love to you friend

Yes, it will get better. Did you get the neulesta shot after your first chemo?

Days 4-7 were the worst. I got to where I could know almost exactly to the hour how I would feel. You will get to that. Then you just grit your teeth and go through to the other side. I take it that your first treatment was Monday?

How is the rest of the day going, Pat?

You are in my thoughts

I did 6 rounds of TAC on a 3 week cycle. I could count on being in a chemo fog (too many meds) for about 3 days. Then I would have a 'crash' day, whatever side effect was going to pop up would do it on the crash day. Then I would slowly climb out of it, getting a little better each day. I usually felt pretty good by the middle of week 2, and in week 3 was when I scheduled social/volunteer stuff.

Hopefully you will find a rhythm with your treatments, it makes chemo a little more tolerable. Best Wishes.

Hugs,

Linda

Today, day 5 was better than day 4. How did your day go with going to the surgeon and wearing your wig?
Hugs and prayers
