A week ago, the needle sliped and the Taxol dumped into the arm tissue rather than the vein. So I limpt home and treated my sore arm with an ice pack and some extra pain meds. Fast forward a week to my next visit. The PA looked shocked when she saw my arm. "It's infected" Oh Good. Your neutraphils are in the tank also. So no chemo this week. Good? Bad?
Two shots of antibiotics in the butocks (one for the left and one for the right). Not bad since I did wear clean underware (I always do but saying so makes the story funny.) Home with a bottle of antibiotic capsules. A couple of days later, my arm may be getting better. Still iceing it a couple of times a day.
Whine: I have to grind or break up capsules 9 times daily. Add contents to apple sauce and get that down. Whine Over. I also have 10 other "normal" pills to grind up and two meds that come in liquid form. Just taking the meds is exhausting. I quess the whine is over now.
Hands pealing due to Erbibux. Use Verace? lotion and gloves. Actually typing wearing gloves right now, and an ice bag weighing down my left arm. Get the picture? Maybe I should take one.
Hope to be getting a little better. Let you know in a couple of days. Rick.
