Well. Tomorrow, the needle comes out for the last time (and I have 5FUs for the FU). Tuesday this blessed port comes out. And oi nothing goes wrong, the last radiation treatment is scheduled for the 29th. I still have off-the-chart pain when going to the bathroom, has me screaming into a towel so the neighbors don't hear me and my solution, illogical, poorly-advised, overall bad is to eat as little as possible. Yes, I know, a bad choice but that's what I'm doing. Desperation leads to desperate measures. Anyway, two questions: One, how many of you have had what appears to be a very bad sunburn in the groin that DIDN'T escalate to anything worse, and Two, since the nadir (low point) of the blood values comes between 3-4 weeks after the chemo is delivered, how many people had hemoglobin (or other) blood values that dipped lower during the second round of chemo than the first? Thanks in advance. Oh, one more thing... anyone experience bowel urgency, sudden, no worning, and following immediately (like less than one minute) after eating, even just a sip of water?
